Les Kapsber'girls


Passionate about exploring the pre-baroque and baroque repertoire, this young ensemble created in 2015 reunites four musicians and time to time some guests!

The Kapsber'Girls are looking for new ways of interpreting historical sources. Drawing their inspiration in diverse traditional repertoires, the four musicians are working at XVIIe and XVIIIe centuries pieces in a new transversal manner, playing with diversity of styles.
Energy and vitality are borrowed to « popular » music, the colors taken from actual music, the girls are willing to find novelty in ancestry.

Their name?  It is inspired by one of the most famous Italian composers from the start of the 17th century: Hiéronymus Kapsberger (1580 – 1651) that the girls honor in their first CD recording Che fai tù? (2020, Muso) which obtains several important awards such as Diapason d’Or (FR), ffff Télérama (FR), Jocker Découverte Crescendo Magazine (BE), Recording of the Month MusicWebInternational (UK).

Their second disc, released in 2021, about the French baroque repertory of Brunettes songs, (Alpha Classic) was awarded by the specialized international press (Recording of the week by Gramophone, 5 Diapasons, 5 stars Classica Magazine…)

The Kapsber'Girls are regularly the recipient of artistic & creation residencies in important artistic places such as Académie Bach (Arques-la-Bataille), La Cité de la Voix, Sinfonia en Périgord, and the CCR d'Ambronay,CCR Ferme de Villefavard, CCR Abbaye aux Dames.
