Founder & Artistic Director Scott Lygate


Azalea is a passionate ensemble dedicated to the exploration and performance of new repertoire and being part of the future of contemporary music. Founded in 2007 by clarinettist/composer Scott Lygate, our vision for Azalea is that in time it will develop to become one of the leading platforms for exposing and promoting new music, through a deep understanding of repertoire, and excellence in performance. The ensemble is made up of exceptionally committed musicians mainly from the Royal Academy of Music, London, whom all share a love of new music. 


Recently Azalea were invited to open the Lucerne Chamber Music festival in October 2013
