Badinage

Flûte Alors! dedicates its last concert of the season to Johann Sebastian Bach. The ensemble presents original arrangements of pieces you thought you knew! On the program: Orchestral Suite No. 2 in B minor, and other large-scale pieces, as well as more intimate works such as the Leipzig chorales, originally written for a single organ. With this concert, the quartet continues its exploration of Bach’s fascinating repertoire.

Eolo e Orfeo

Flûte Alors! joins forces with viol consort Les Voix Humaines in a concert where strings and winds court, go to war, and reconcile. With lutenist Sylvain Bergeron and harpist Antoine Malette-Chénier, the two ensembles explore the works of the Italian Renaissance as well as a new creation for four recorders and four viola da gambas by Montreal composer François-Hugues Leclair. Don’t miss this spectacular evening of broken consort!
