During the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, the musical dialogue between the Old and the New Worlds produced extraordinary results. The internationally acclaimed Ensemble Caprice calls this unique style and fascinating blend of European polyphony and Latin American traditional music Salsa Baroque.  Gems from this spectacular musical era will be performed on instruments that were common at the time:  flutes and recorders, baroque guitar, violoncello and various percussion instruments. 

Heralded as a group that encourages listeners to rehear the world, Ensemble Caprice returns to the Houston Early Music stage for another imaginative, incomparable performance during the 2013-2014 season.

The event is set for 7:30 p.m. on Friday, April 11, 2014, at Palmer Memorial Episcopal Church, 6221 Main Street, Houston 77030. A pre-concert talk with ensemble director Matthias Maute begins at 6:45 p.m.
