Based in Montreal, Maute directs Ensemble Caprice, an early-music ensemble with an eclectic approach to its repertoire, which explains how that sweet, unamplified recorder qualifies for rock star status. According to one reviewer, “How Maute got through the frenzied cadenzas … without blisters on his fingers and tongue is beyond me.” $20. 7:30 p.m. Friday, Feb. 1. Christ Church Cathedral, 318 E. Fourth St., Downtown. catacoustic.com.
