Renowned baroque soloists Vincent Lauzer (recorder) and Mathieu Lussier (bassoon) combine their considerable talents for a bouquet of sonatas by Vivaldi, Fasch, Boismortier, and Telemann.

Winner of several prizes in national and international competitions, Lauzer was awarded the Fernand-Lindsay Career Award in 2015, First Prize at the 2012 Stepping Stone Canada Music Competition, and the Career Development Award from the Women's Musical Club of Toronto in 2012.
Mathieu Lussier has energetically and passionately promoted modern and baroque bassoon as solo instruments throughout North America and Europe for nearly two decades. He devotes considerable time to chamber music as a member of ensemble Pentaèdre de Montréal. His numerous solo recordings include more than a dozen bassoon concertos (Vivaldi, Mozart, Fasch, Graupner, Telemann, and Corrette), an album of bassoon sonatas by Boismortier, three albums for solo bassoon by Franc ois Devienne, and two albums of music for winds by Gossec and Méhul.
