Ensemble Molière perform works by Couperin and Telemann

Wednesday, September 12, 2018 - 13:10

To commemorate the 350th anniversary of Couperin's birth, Ensemble Molière presents a programme entitled 'Les Visionnaires'. They will perform one of Couperin’s master works from Les Nations that exists in a previous version under the name of La Visionnaire, along with one of the Telemann Paris quartets, that is said to have been inspired by Couperin’s Les Nations.

Ensemble Molière was formed by participants of the Dartington International Summer School and is based in London with performers from Japan, the UK, Germany and Australia. The ensemble have performed throughout the UK and Europe; including performances at the MAfestival fringe in Brugge and the Oudemuziek fringe in Utrecht. 2017 has seen the ensemble make their debut at the London Festival of Baroque Music as part of their Future Artists Scheme and compete as finalists in the International Young Artists Competition at the York Early Music Festival. The ensemble has also premiered their first cross art opera project Pygmalion, part funded by Arts Council England and supported by Stroud Green Festival and BREMF. Ensemble Molière has been invited to perform live on BBC3 In Tune with highlights from Pygmalion and also their spoken word and music programme, 'Medicine and Mortality'. They have also recorded their first EP, a collection of French baroque dance movements entitled, 'Dance Sweets', which was released in 2017.
