Ensemble Prisme’s seven veteran musicians have transported listeners to realms of euphonic bliss for six seasons. “L’Octuor de Schubert” tickles eardrums with the Romantic master’s layered octet, affording fans a rare opportunity to hear it live and octopuses a chance to tap all eight legs to their own beats. Celebrating the Outaouais book fair, “La Masque de la Harpe” weaves ethereal tapestries with the stylings of harpist Caroline Leonardelli, woodwinds, and other strings. The concert culminates with a musically backed recitation of works by Edgar Allan Poe, performed by Storyteller of Canada Jacques Falquet. “Mathieu et les Romantiques” spotlights the work of Canadian composer Andre Mathieu, while “Hier, aujourd’hui et demain” features pieces by Alban Berg and Claude Vivier, exposing ears to 20th-century tunes’ unorthodox keys and provocatively gyrating time signatures.
