With musical interests ranging from Bach to Death from Above, and Charpentier to Björk, Aleks Schürmer performs on renaissance, baroque, and keyed flutes while wearing American Apparel and tight fitting jeans. After studies in modern flute with Patrick Gallois (France), Aleks was introduced to historical flutes and completed a graduate degree in Historical Performance at McGill University(Montréal). Aleks has performed with the Tafelmusik Baroque Orchestra, L'orchestre Arion, and Les Idées heureuses. He has performed in Montréal, Toronto, New York City, Halifax, and Vermont. His playing has been called "particularly brilliant" (Claude Gingras, La Presse).

Aleks has been a recital partner with bassoonist Nadina Mackie-Jackson, with whom he has performed at the Ottawa International Chamber Music Festival and University of Toronto, and recorded several of his original compositions for bassoon and piano. His works have been called “major discoveries” (Stephen Ritter, America Record Guide 2003). In 2007 he started the period performance group les tabarnaks d'époque, a project to interweave baroque music with modern culture (be it art, dance, fashion, film, or just hanging out and getting drunk at a bar). An anachronistic way to recreate the excitment of 18th century performances, and stuff. Les tabarnaks recent shows have seen them open up for local electro-rock radicals Halfbaked and particiapte in Indyish.com's Monthly Mess. "But the real stand out for the whole night, the act that had strangers coming in off the street, and me yelling “You guys fucking rock!!” shamelessly, was the baroque quartet “Les Tabarnaks D’Epoque“.

They carried in a Harpsichord bigger than a coffin, and played their vintage instruments and compositions with all the adorable scruffy hoodies and wry jokes of an indie rock band, and all around us people whispered to each other “I need more live, cool classical in my life please”." --Risa Dickens of Indyish.com Read more on Last.fm.
