BBC 3 Announced First-Ever New Generation Baroque Ensemble

Ensemble Molière has been announced as the first New Generation Baroque Ensemble


Beginning in October 2021, and lasting for two years, the new initiative aims to support and showcase UK-based ensembles that focus on the baroque repertoire.

Ensemble Molière was chosen by BBC Radio 3, the Royal College of Music (RCM), and the National Centre for Early Music (NCEM).

Featuring flutist Flavia Hirte, violinist Alice Earll, bassonist Catriona McDermid, viola da gamba/cellist Kate Conway, and harpsichordist Satoko Doi-Luck, Ensemble Molière perform repertoire from the 17th and 18th centuries.

In the two-year program, Ensemble Molière will have residencies at the RCM and NCEM, plus regular appearances on BBC Radio 3.

Alan Davey, Controller BBC Radio 3, said, “for some time we have been keen to see if we can offer help and support to UK-based period-instrument ensembles in the early stages of their careers, to allow them to develop and thrive with the same kind of spirit of innovation and adventure we see in the best ensembles across the world.”

"We are thrilled and honored to be appointed the first-ever BBC New Generation Baroque Ensemble, and to become part of the New Generation family,” said Ensemble Molière.

“We are looking forward to collaborating with the wonderful team from three organizations - BBC, RCM, and NCEM - as well as to the opportunities and experiences we will enjoy on the scheme, including live performances and broadcasts.”
