Capriccio Stravagante is world-renowned for their memorable interpretations of Renaissance and Baroque music.


It all began in 1986, when Skip Sempé founded France's first internationally distinguished chamber ensemble especially dedicated to seventeenth and eighteenth century instrumental repertoire.


Directed by Skip Sempé, the ensemble of 3 to 50 performers now incorporates Capriccio Stravagante, the Capriccio Stravagante Renaissance Orchestra and Capriccio Stravagante Les 24 Violons. 


Since the very beginning, the musicians have shared an individual and collective dedication to unlimited liberty of expression, outstanding power of instrumental sonority and vocal excellence. Their success is the result of the selection of superb, one-of-a-kind musicians chosen and catalyzed by Skip Sempé.


Since the very beginning, the combination of nonchalance and power which are the trademarks of Skip Sempé and Capriccio Stravagante’s live performances and recordings have been rewarded with outstanding critical praise worldwide.


These prizewinning recordings have made a considerable contribution to Capriccio Stravagante’s acceptance as the foremost interpretive force in Renaissance and Baroque repertoire to have emerged in decades.
