Local violinist Alice Earll is joined by the internationally-acclaimed early music group Ensemble Molière to present Dance Sweets – an evening of dance-inspired musical morsels from composers including Bach, Handel and Rameau.
Pre-concert talk at 6.30pm (free to ticket holders) – discussing the relationship between music and dance in the baroque era.
“Ensemble Molière brought us rather overlooked and sometimes neglected music from the French baroque and presented it with an artistic flair that added real texture to the enjoyment of the music…an excellent concert.” – Eric Page, G Scene Magazine
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 will be available to buy in late 2017.
