BACH TO THE FUTURE
FLÛTE ALORS! RECORDER QUARTET
Vincent Lauzer, Alexa Raine-Wright, Marie-Laurence Primeau, Caroline Tremblay
Dynamic and versatile, this Montreal based ensemble continues a grand tradition of the recorder ensemble in Québec. They reveal an instrument capable of expressing the most extreme emotions and the most gentle of nuances. Internationally, they have performed in France, Germany and the United States. Michel Pintal from Le Soleil wrote that “Flûte Alors! is like a good wine; they stunned the audience with repertoire from two very different eras.” Their Virtuosi Concert takes us on a journey from Bach to jazz to a neo-baroque work commissioned for composer Matthias Maute, who, as leader of Ensemble Caprice, performed here in January 2015.
PROGRAMME: Bach Five major works including excerpts from the Goldberg Variations, two Concerti, and Medley: Bach to the Future; Dizzy Gillespie A Night in Tunisia; D. Koomans The Jogger; Kosma/Prévert/Godbout Autumn Leaves
