From the Orient to the Baroque Nomads

Ensemble Caprice and OktoÉcho
Our adventure with baroque nomadic music continues!
Indeed, following on the successes of Vivaldi and the baroque Gypsies and Telemann and the baroque Gypsies, recorded on the Analekta label, Caprice now completes the trilogy, adding an oriental touch to the series by placing baroque Gypsy music side by side with The Oriental Miscellany collection published in Calcutta in 1789.
In collaboration with Festival de la Voix.
Venue tbd, Dorval (Québec)

About Concerts noncerto
Concerts noncerto’s purpose is to advance the public’s appreciation of the arts by providing:
outstanding performances of classical music orchestral, instrumental, voice and choral; dance and visual arts for the public,
interpretations and new compositions for public appreciation,
live, online and otherwise, that would enable participation by audiences that may not normally be able to attend regular performances, and
to emerging artists and exceptional ensembles in the production, distribution and promotion to the public through all available media channels.
JUNO Award winning conductor, composer, recorder and flute soloist Matthias Maute has achieved an international reputation. In 2016 he was named artistic director of the Bach Society of Minnesota. Impressed by his artistic approach, The New York Times described the orchestra he conducts in Montreal, Ensemble Caprice, as being “an ensemble that encourages the listener to rehear the world.”
Maute’s recording of Bach’s Brandenburg Concertos juxtaposed with Maute’s own arrangements of Preludes from Shostakovich's Op. 87 was hailed by The New Yorker’s Alex Ross as standing out “for its fleet, characterful approach” and “its fresh, vibrant colors”.
Matthias Maute’s compositions are published by Breitkopf & Härtel, Amadeus, Moeck and Carus. In 2014 and 2015, Maute’s 1st violin concerto was performed by soloist Mark Fewer with the St. John’s Symphony and with I Musici de Montréal. Forty-nine movements of Matthias Maute’s compositions are featured in 49 videos on noncerto.com.
Matthias Maute has made some twenty recordings on the Analekta, Vanguard Classics, Bella Musica, Dorian, Bridge and ATMA Classique labels. He is regularly invited to perform at major international festivals. Matthias Maute is co-artistic director of the Montreal Baroque Festival. He currently teaches at l’Université de Montréal and McGill University.
