Ensemble Caprice performs iLove baroque at McMaster!
ENSEMBLE CAPRICE is one of Canada’s leading early music groups on period instruments known for its innovative and adventuresome approach to the repertoire. JUNO Award winner in 2009 for their Vivaldi’s Angels recording, The New York Times wrote “The ensemble has established itself as an immensely thoughtful and progressive force on the musical scene”. Critic Alex Ross of The New Yorker picked their Bach/Shostakovich recording as one of the Notable Classical Performances and Recordings of 2013. Founded and led by acclaimed recorder virtuoso Matthias Maute, the Montreal based ensemble tours extensively across Canada, United States, Europe, and also Asia.
Program iLove baroque creates a lively atmosphere designed to engage the audience in an unusual way. Five musicians, eight short anecdotes, nine roses, two centuries of wonderful music from five countries by composers like J.S. Bach, A. Vivaldi, H. Purcell and others; all these make for a program full of drama, tenderness, joy, humour and melancholy (5 musicians : 2 flutes, cello, guitar and percussion).
