Matthias Maute has carved out an impressive international reputation for himself not only as one of the great recorder and baroque flute virtuosos of his generation but also as a composer and conductor. Since winning first prize in the soloist category at the prestigious Bruges Early Music Competition in 1990, he has led a highly successful career as a recorder and baroque flute soloist. He made his debut in New York’s Lincoln Center in 2008 and has twice been the featured soloist for the Boston Early Music Festival.
Hailed for his athletic and virtuoso playing and for his sensitive interpretations, recorder player Vincent Lauzer leads an active career as a performer, artistic director, and teacher. He is the artistic director of the Lamèque International Baroque Music Festival, the co-artistic director of Les Plaisirs du Clavecin, works with Arion Baroque Orchestra to develop programs for young audiences and since November 2022, he is the co-artistic director of the Montreal Baroque Festival. In October 2018, his recording of Vivaldi's concertos with Arion Baroque Orchestra was awarded a Diapason d'Or by the famous French magazine Diapason.
