• For Bach‘n’Jazz, their first album on ATMA Classique, the recorder ensemble Flûte Alors! performs an eclectic mix of Bach's music and jazz standards.   Tunes like Night in Tunisia or Fly Me to the Moon are paired with fugues and concertos by Bach arranged for recorder quartet.   This playful juxtaposition reflects both the timelessness of Bach's music and the many connections between baroque music and jazz.

• Dynamic and versatile, Montreal-based ensemble Flūte Alors! is composed of four new-generation recorder players.   Unique in its category, the ensemble is the only professional recorder quartet in Canada.   Flûte Alors! often collaborates with other artists from diverse backgrounds.   The group frequently commissions pieces for recorder ensemble from the new generation of composers, in addition to creating their own arrangements.

• Flûte Alors! has been awarded prizes and nominations at the national and international level.   The ensemble has been featured in numerous music festivals, and has performed in France, Germany, and the United States.

• Flûte Alors! has performed extensively across Canada as part of the Jeunesses Musicales Canada, Debut Atlantic, and Prairie Debut tour seasons.   The ensemble is currently touring Eastern Canada with their show “Recorders on the Run,” a co-production with Jeunesses Musicales Canada for young audiences.
