Our September concert

Ensemble Moliere performed two wonderful concerts on September 18th in St Martin’s Church, London Road.

In the afternoon these five talented players, who have recently been nominated as BBC’s New Generation Baroque Artists, performed to a young audience at the concert which offered free entry to families.

The members of the group each described their instruments, interspersing the descriptions with items from their programme of French Baroque Music.

Th evening concert entitled Dance Sweets consisted of works from the French Baroque period by Rameau, Couperin and Lully.

Worcestershire Early Music wishes them all the best for their two years ahead as BBC’s Young Generation Baroque Artists
