Enigma14 have come together out of a passion for performing chamber music which is under the horizon of many audiences. The combination of wind, strings and piano offers intense tone colours, and shows the almost vocal power of communication between them, especially with flute, cello and piano. Lisa Nelsen (flute), Julian Metzger (cello) and Paul Turner (piano) have found that playing with each other created an awareness between them that they could almost taste, with a connection that was evident in their performance. Individually, each has an impressive pedigree that supports their performances and interpretations in concert halls and festivals (Wigmore Hall, St David’s Hall, Queen Elizabeth Hall, St Johns’ Smith Square, Canterbury Festival, Swaledale Festival to name a few). Their programme includes duos and trios by Weber, JS Bach, Martinu, Alwyn, Fauré, Mendelssohn, Dussek, Beethoven, Prokofiev, Liebermann, Eric Tanguy, Kenneth Hesketh and Malcolm Forsyth.

“…the interaction between you all was remarkable and there was an authority and confidence evident which was remarkable in such a new grouping. The moments of discussion between the three instruments were palpable and provided great contrast to the strong combined sections.” Two Moors Festival

“Delicious…wonderful powers of communication in concert” David Campbell, Clarinet soloist, Artist for Yamaha UK, Director MusicFest in Aberystwyth

“…a lively and fresh creative approach and play with great authority as an ensemble – uplifting music making.” Peter Hewitt, Music Director at Benslow Music Trust

“…a magical quality in communicating with an audience: a freshness and directness that endears instantly endears them to their listeners…their choice of programme is varied and inventive.” Kenneth Hesketh, Composer and Professor at the Royal College of Music


Lisa Nelsen is internationally recognised for her versatility as a flute soloist, chamber and orchestral musician, educator and mentor in performance practices. Her performances with Continuum Ensemble’s Swept Away series in London’s King’s Place were wonderfully received, and she was dubbed “…a flautist and a half…” by The Times. She grew up on a pig farm in Western Canada, and fed on all kinds of music, from opera to rock to jazz. She makes many venues her stage, and thrives on sharing the energy that performances can generate. Her flute and harp duo with Eleanor Turner, Aquilae, has performed to packed audiences across the UK. She is a member of The Harborough Collective, a chamber ensemble led by internationally acclaimed violinist David Le Page, and most recently formed Enigma14 with cellist Julian Metzger and pianist Paul Turner. Lisa gives concerts and masterclasses in venues across the UK, Canada, the United States, and Hong Kong. In June this year, Lisa was asked to become Chair for the Council of the British Flute Society. She is a Professor at the Junior Department of the Guildhall School of Music in London, teaching flute and coaching wind chamber groups and the orchestral winds and has been the Specialist Flute Tutor at Wells Cathedral School for more than 15 years. Lisa is extremely proud to be an artist for Yamaha Classical Division International, playing on her 14k 900Series flute.
