Ensemble Caprice was privileged to be able to perform in several magnificent concert halls. The first of these was Lautligen Castle, the former residence of the Stauffenberg brothers, Berthold and Klaus, who were instrumental in planning the assassination attempt against Hitler in 1944. Caprice then went on to give a performance near Lake Constance, and another in Stuttgart’s legendary medieval Veitskappelle, which miraculously survived the bombings during the second World War.

Here is what the critics wrote about our performances:

The large audience who came to hear Ensemble Caprice’s Stauffenberg Castle concert in Lautlingen were highly enthusiastic after the performance. Indeed, baroque music interpreted in authentic baroque style is not something to be considered as merely a dusty museum piece; it is music replete with spirit, diversity and humour.”
Zollernalbkurier

The audience was so enthusiastic after having been led on this spirited baroque-era voyage that they wouldn’t stop applauding. They only agreed to leave the church, with radiant faces, after the Ensemble had agreed to play two encores. “
Südkurier

With the support of the Foundation of Greater Montreal, Ensemble Caprice is among the organisations having been chosen to be part of “ALLIANCE – 150.” This is the body in charge of overseeing events on a nationwide scale for the 150th anniversary of the Canadian Federation. Caprice will perform its Carrefour Métis concert.
