A striking combination:  an outstanding independent Ukrainian chamber orchestra meets famous Swiss recorder virtuoso Maurice Steger in a concert of energetic works inspired by the spirit of Baroque.  Together they will create a tribute to the glorious Baroque music, giving the familiar masterpieces a 21-st century twist for the final concert of Bouquet Kyiv Stage Festival-2020.

Maurice Steger plays the recorder with projection, flamboyance and remarkable agility; moving, ducking and weaving with each expressive nuance as though serenading a skeptical lover.

Maurice Steger is an incredibly charismatic musician: spontaneous, captivating and full of energy. With his vibrant manner, intense and full instrumental sound and amazing technique, this “recorder wizard” has managed to bring to prominence the recorder as an instrument in all its fascinating forms.

With a repertoire focusing on Baroque music, Steger is a soloist much in demand among the major historical original-sound ensembles: Akademie für Alte Musik Berlin, the English Concert, the Zurich Chamber Orchestra, the Venice Baroque Orchestra and I Barocchisti.

Yet his numerous concerts also see him regularly performing with modern orchestras such as the Berlin Baroque Soloists, Les Violons du Roy, and the NDR and hr radio orchestras. Maurice Steger has also often performed together with famous artists such as Hilary Hahn, Cecilia Bartoli, Igor Oistrakh, Fabio Biondi, Sandrine Piau, Andrew Manze, Diego Fasolis, Sol Gabetta and Laurence Cummings.

‘Mr. Corelli in London’, ‘Una Follia di Napoli’, ‘ Vivaldi: Concerti per flauto’ and ‘Telemann: Recorder Works’ with The English Concert, I Barocchisti and the Aka-demie für Alte Musik Berlin: numerous award-win-ning CD recordings published by harmonia mundi, most of them with highly imaginative thematic concepts, are a long-standing testament to the unique prominence achieved by this artist

Other outstanding releases in his discography are the recorder quartets of Telemann (Deutsche Grammophon/Archiv), the album ‘Venezia 1625’ and recorder works by Telemann (harmonia mundi), and his own productions for children. Many of them have won major international prizes. This ever-enthusiastic musician gives several masterclasses every year and became director of the Gstaad Baroque Academy in 2013. In all these activities, he is delighted to observe the emergence of a new generation of top-class young recorder players.
