Concert-Lancement : Flûte passion : Bach
February 12th, 2020 7:30pm
Cirque Éloize, 417 rue Berri, Montréal
Nadia Labrie, Luc Beauséjour and Camille Paquette-Roy
This latest edition of the Flûte Passion series presents a fresh approach to Bach’s most beautiful works for the flute. The originality of our approach is reflected in both the interpretation and our instruments—a modern transverse flute made of wood, a modern cello with a Baroque bow, and the harpsichord part played on piano (and even playing a flute part in the Trio Sonata BWV 1039). We present this original and very personal performance of Bach’s works with a deference to Baroque conventions, a love for the music, and the joy of playing it together.
In collaboration with the Festival Classica, Jacques Marchand and the Cirque Éloize
About Concerts noncerto
Concerts noncerto’s purpose is to advance the public’s appreciation of the arts by providing:

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.
