Gamma Majoris

gammanajoris

Gamma Majoris is a London-based ensemble created by four established soloists combining their talents and perspectives to present classical music in a new way. The ensemble’s name derives from the star Gamma Ursae Majoris and as well as the term for ‘major scale’ in Russian musical terms (гамма – scale, мажор – major). Gamma Majoris’ concert programmes showcase the individual and combined talents of the group in different ensemble combinations.
