Ensemble Molière celebrate the 300th anniversary of Handel's much-loved Water Music with a programme of baroque dance suites composed for both King George I of England and King Louis XIV of France. Handel's Water Music was premiered this very day in 1717 on the River Thames. We will be playing instrumental suites from both Handel's Water Music and Lully's Le Bourgeois Gentilhomme.

Players: Flavia Hirte, Oonagh Lee, Ellen Bundy, Jakab Kaufmann and Satoko Doi-Luck
