FRINGE - Les Aléas
Founded in January 2019, ensemble Les Aléas is an early music chamber group consisting of four young professional musicians sharing a passion for French Baroque music. As students at the Royal Academy of Music in London, they often have played chamber music together, as well as participated in the Academy’s Historical Performance Department orchestral projects, such as a notable performance of Bach’s Matthew’s Passion, directed by Trevor Pinnock. Since their formation they have started to discover the wonderful repertoire of the French Baroque.
The ensemble has been coached by Matthew Truscott and has taken a part in masterclasses with James Johnstone and Laurence Cummings. In March 2019 Les Aléas participated in the Nancy Nuttall Early Music Competition, where the group was noticed for its musical coherence and consequently awarded the second prize.
The ensemble has a few exciting upcoming engagements planned, including performances in the MA Fringe Festival Brugge, Belgium and the Utrecht Early Music Fringe Festival in the Netherlands.
