Explode your preconceptions of the recorder with this concert of delightful and daring concertos.
“Melville shapes the phrases marvelously; music, breath, and ornaments are as one. This is art beyond time—the moment might last forever.” – Early Music America
If you thought the recorder was just an instrument for school concerts, think again. Virtuoso performer Alison Melville joins a select chamber group of Tafelmusik musicians to present the baroque recorder. Radiant, whimsical, melancholic, fun, bright—this is the nerdy recorder of your youth, but restored to its original glory.
Pyrotechnic concertos by Vivaldi and Telemann reveal the thrilling possibilities baroque composers explored in writing for the recorder, while Van Eyck’s charming variations from his Garden of Delights are inspired by the bewitching song of the nightingale.
