Ensemble Spinoza is a Montreal based early music ensemble. It was cofounded by Noémy Gagnon-Lafrenais and Christophe Gauthier in 2020. Acclaimed gambist Margaret Little joined the ensemble in 2021. The group specializes in the performance of 17th century baroque on period instruments. The ensemble’s mission is to uncover hidden gems of the repertoire and make them available to North Americans. Ensemble Spinoza stands apart through its profound artistic contemplation, embodying a pursuit of knowledge that echoes the philosophers from whom it draws its name. The ensemble’s dedication to intellectual curiosity and exploration is a driving force behind its unique musical identity. Through its music, the ensemble aspires to offer an intimate and unassuming experience to its audience, offering a sincere opportunity for introspection on the human condition.
