Montreal Baroque Festival launches online series: LES BAROQUERIES 2020
Montreal, (Quebec) Fall-Winter 2020 – Susie Napper and Matthias Maute, Montreal Baroque’s co-artistic directors, are flying a new Festival flag in the cool of Autumn.
LES BAROQUERIES 2020 will reveal the performer’s passions with a video series by Montreal musicians andcaptivating house concerts all offered online for free throughout the harvest season. Throughout the Fall and Winter season on the FMB’s website: http://www.montrealbaroque.com/fr/videos and on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/montrealbaroque/
This Fall, Festival Montréal Baroque will present a series of short videos by eight well known or lesser known Montreal baroque musicians revealing their passions. Each will offer insights into subjects dear to their hearts such as 17th century, gourmet baroque biscuits or composing new Bach.
Concert cameos will transport you around the world while in the comfort of your home.
Concerts recorded on the canals of Bruges, in a 17th century Parisian music room, from the exotic coasts of Iran or India and music from another great plague are part this original series.
