In London, on the evening the Fibonaccis made their debut in October 1994, there was a general transport strike, with absolutely no trains or buses running. This inherently catastrophic start was countered by the Fibonaccis and their supporting team with characteristic resilience and the concert sported a gratifyingly full hall, received a terrific review and gave rise to a host of fans, all of which ingredients can be said to have contributed to the continuing Fibonacci success.
The Fibonacci Sequence celebrated its twentieth anniversary in 2014, and is considered one of the UK’s most distinguished chamber ensembles with a wide-ranging discography and impressive reviews. The ensemble members appear at the world’s leading festivals and venues and many of them are also on the faculties of leading conservatoires in the UK and abroad.
Their discography includes works by British composers including, among others, John McCabe, Frank Bridge, Alan Rawsthorne and the woman composer Adela Maddison. The American composer Ned Rorem features on a CD of his works by Naxos, and for the company Deux-Elles the ensemble has recorded a series of CDs featuring different solo instruments – to date, harp, bassoon, oboe, horn and clarinet, together with Messiaen’s Quartet for the End of Time, and Schubert’s Octet.
The group is named after Leonardo of Pisa, a great mediaeval mathematician, commonly known as Fibonacci. The series of numbers named after him occurs throughout the natural world in the most extraordinary way, appearing magically, in petals of flowers, branches of trees, and many more complex way. The relation of the numbers to each other is directly connected to the Golden Section, held by many to determine the most harmonious proportions in art and music.
The Fibonacci Sequence has recently been joined by the brilliant violinist Daniel Pioro as leader, and together with founder member Paul Archibald on trumpet, and Artistic Director Kathron Sturrock, piano, form the trio from the Fibonacci Sequence
