Rameau 250

Lawrence Oldsworth-Peter
A new ensemble, the International Rameau Ensemble, are appealing for funds via Kickstarter to help them launch their Rameau 250 Spring Project: a UK concert tour of Rameau's rarely performed sacred choral works, which as far as they know will be the works' premiere performances in the UK. The ensemble was founded by artistic director Lawrence Olsworth-Peter to celebrate Rameau's 250th anniversary this year. The company launched last year with a concert scenes from Rameau's operas. 

In addition to their spring tour they plan a tour of a double bill of Rameau's Pygmaleon and Anacreon in the autumn.

Olsworth-Peter trained as a tenor at the Royal Academy of Music and made his debut at Pesaro Opera Festival as Don Luigino in Il Viaggio a Reims under the direction of Alberto Zedda in 2010. He was a finalist in the 2012 Les Azuriales Young Artist Competition in Nice

You can support them via their Kickstarter page. A video of them in action follows after the break:
