    Atelier Jeune Public Comment ça marche ?

    Founded by Juliette Guignard and Louis-Noël Bestion de Camboulas in 2010, the Ensemble Les Surprises uses its varied and original programmes to share its passion for the music of the 17th and 18th centuries. The ensemble takes its name from the opera-ballet Les Surprises de l’Amour by Jean-Philippe Rameau, and this composer remains their touchstone for their explorations of opera music in all its guises. This morning’s concert is devoted to love in all its many forms – tragic, comic, light, and satirical – in famous and less well-known works by Purcell. Rhythm and passion from the grand master of British music.
