On the Suite of dances in the Baroque period
Amarillis frequently works with amateur musicians, students and pre-professionals during master classes on various programs.
“At the church of Trier, from 14 h 30, the first concert brought together students and teachers from music schools in the Saumur Val de Loire agglomeration and three artists from the baroque ensemble Amarillis, internationally famous, in a program featuring a series of baroque dances, under the direction of Bruno Montiege. This opening resolutely dedicated to young talents made the nave of this small Romanesque church vibrate.. A performance hailed by the applause of the audience, in which were the parents of the young musicians.” West Mail June 2021
