Recorders & Recorder music for all ages

2019 Workshop Theme: ​


Unleashing the Expressive Powers of the Recorder 

From the Elizabethan period through the Baroque, recorders were used to evoke love, death, gods, angels, birds, pastoral scenes and the presence of royalty and nobility. Recorders possess a singularly unique sound and the
power to create mood and stir emotion.
In this workshop, we will explore these unique qualities by playing a mix of evocative recorder repertoire spanning 400+ years. We will apply techniques specific to tone, articulation, dynamics and phrasing that heighten the mood
and enhance the emotional character of the music.
