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

They have performed throughout the UK and Europe to much acclaim: Albert Edelman of Concertgebouw Brugge writes of their performance…”having heard the stylish Ensemble Moliere a couple of times…one thing that struck me in particular is their consistent quality. Their devotion to the playful and by all means extremely demanding French repertoire I found quite rare indeed”
