We love to perform and create new music for Recorders, and have had the pleasure of working with many composers - here you can find some information about the pieces we have recently collaborated on.
Performing and commissioning new music has been a core part of BLOCK4's work since the group formed in 2012. We aim to help grow the repertoire available for recorder quartet, and broaden the reach of existing contemporary recorder music.
We are always open to new collaborations - if you would like to work with us, please
get in touch. We'd love to hear from you!
