Ever since "The Independent" crowned him "the world's leading recorder virtuoso", Switzerland's Maurice Steger has become one of the leading interpreters of Baroque music, performing concerts all across the globe both with the recorder and as a conductor. Numerous award-winning and thematically creative CD projects – like his recent offerings "Venezia 1625", "Mr Corelli in London" and "Una follia di Napoli" – attest to his unique position in the field.
Maurice Steger has toured with Violons du Roy through the USA and Canada, maintains a long-time close artistic friendship with The English Concert, and regularly works with the Barocchisti, the Akademie für Alte Musik Berlin, the Barockorchester Europa Galante and the Venice Baroque Orchestra. In addition, he has performed numerous times as a conductor and a soloist with modern orchestras such as the Zürcher Kammerorchester, Musikkollegium Winterthur, Brandenburg State Orchestra Frankfurt, Staatsorchester Braunschweig and the Berlin Barock Solisten, NDR Radiophilharmonie, Taipei Symphony Orchestra as well as the Malaysia Symphony Orchestra. He continues to work with renowned artists like Cecilia Bartoli, Hilary Hahn, Andreas Scholl, Bernard Labadie, Fabio Biondi, Sandrine Piau, Diego Fasolis, Sol Gabetta, Thomas Quasthoff and Nuria Rial.
Equally important to Maurice Steger's artistic work are programs for smaller chamber music ensembles and solo recitals. Together with carefully selected masters of Baroque music like Hille Perl, Lee Santana, Naoki Kitaya, Sergi Ciomei or Mauro Valli and with his own ensemble, he continues to put forward new selections from material that has been more or less unheard for centuries.
