‘Under Jacqueline Shave's spirited and intelligent direction the rewards were immense’ Bach Track

‘Under Jacqueline Shave's spirited and intelligent direction the rewards were immense’ Bachtrack

'The leader, Jacqueline Shave, channelled so much energy into her playing, it was hard to look away' The Times

 'A collaborative chamber musician of pure class and quality.....there’s no doubt that her artistry, inspiration and pure unfettered love of the music we play has had so much to do with the orchestra’s happy success over these years' 

David Butcher, former Chief Executive, Britten Sinfonia

'Jacqueline Shave is simply one of the most inspiring musicians I have had the privilege of sharing a stage with. Britten Sinfonia is deeply collaborative but in the end we would follow her anywhere without question'

Nicholas Daniel, Oboe

'She’s such a fantastic leader – she’s very charismatic. You can tell that she’s thinking about so much more than just the notes'
