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. 

"Pygmalion has to be one of the most exciting projects out on the early music scene today. It is historically informed and wonderfully performed by a cast of stunning young singers and players." - Clare Norburn, Artistic Director, Stroud Green Festival & Co-Artistic Director, Brighton Early Music Festival

"Having heard the stylish Ensemble Molière a couple of times in the summer of 2015, one thing that struck me in particular is their consistent quality. Their devotion to the delicate, playful and by all means extremely demanding French repertoire I found quite rare indeed" - Albert Edelman, Concertgebouw Brugge

"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
