Banchetto musicale (2007)


SKU: AE 10156


The program ranges from the 17th to the 21st century. The names Johann Hermman Schein, Tarquinio Merula and Johann Sebastian Bach stand for the treasures of early recorder music. Ralph Vaughan William’s wonderful and seldom-heard “Suite for Pipes” leads into the contemporary repertoire, represented by works of Piet Swerts, Jan Van Roost and Frans Geysen that are lively, imaginative and of unheard-of sonic beauty: It is not without reason that numerous compositions have been dedicated to the Flanders Recorder Quartet. An expressive improvisation in medieval style is also offered.
