Ensemble La Rêveuse Announces 5 Concerts in Canada
Seventeenth and eighteenth century ensemble La Rêveuse will be on tour in Canada 10-14 May 2017. Under the direction of Benjamin Perrot and Florence Bolton, the musicians will return to the Salle Bourgie at the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts on 10th May to perform their critically-acclaimed programme of Telemann’s trios and quartets. Two days later, the 12th May at the Alliance française of Toronto, the ensemble will perform a programme of Londonian sonatas inspired by Purcell entitled Ferveur italienne à Londres, a programme which will be recorded in Paris later this year for release in 2019.
Florence Bolton (viola da gamba) and Benjamin Perrot (lute and theorbo) will also perform two private concerts in Canada in addition to a recital celebrating French music.
Tour supported by SPEDIDAM, the Society for the Collection and Distribution of Royalties for Performing Artists.
