About Ensemble Masques
The international slate of early-music specialists known as Masques is acclaimed for their expressiveness, eloquence of interpretation and the dynamic musical involvement of each member. The name of the ensemble is inspired by the masques of Elizabethan England — mystical performances that fused poetry, music, dance and drama. The six members of Masques, who hail from Canada, France, Australia, Finland and Belgium, work without conductor. Their uncommon chemistry combines razor sharp ensemble with a spontaneity and freedom that brings to life the music of the 17th and 18th centuries. Join them to celebrate the 250th anniversary of Telemann’s death with a program of his most theatrical works.
