‘Réunion des goûts’ celebrates and explores the coming together of French and Italian musical styles as pioneered by François Couperin and developed by Georg Philipp Telemann. The réunion des goûts was an idea promoted by Couperin in his masterpiece L’Apothéose de Lully published in 1725 and further explored a year later in Les Nations, a four part composition dedicated to the illustration and integration of these national styles. Perhaps with a nod to Couperin, Georg Telemann capitalised on this musical trend with the publication of his ‘Paris’ Quartets. Ensemble Molière have gained a reputation as an established early music ensemble. Their unique combination of instruments provides memorable and creative programmes from the repertoire of the 17th and 18th centuries, all performed on historical instruments. Ensemble Molière have been selected as the first-ever Radio 3 New Generation Baroque Ensemble for two years from October 2021, a new scheme run in partnership by BBC Radio 3, the National Centre for Early Music and the Royal College of Music.
