Flanders Recorder Quartet & Friends • Concerti (CD)
Recorders within an orchestral sound: This project was a matter near to the hearts of the world-famous Flanders Recorder Quartet: music for several recorders and ensemble, a number of pieces even for a whole Baroque orchestra ... Jewels by Vivaldi, Bach, Heinichen, and Purcell are to be heard! As a “counterpoint” to this, Piet Swerts’s fascinating work Motion from 2001.
Until their disbandment in 2018, Flanders Recorder Quartet was certainly the most prominent and consistently active recorder quartet in the world. It regularly makes concert tours through Europe, North America, and Asia.
