Polyphony and Eccentricity
Polyphony and Eccentricity - our two favourite things about the recorder!
Over the course of this concert, we use over 30 instruments in all shapes and sizes to take the audience on a tour of the many genres where the recorder feels at home - from delicate counterpoint in early choral works, to complex Baroque fugues, to our own unique arrangements of pop songs and more.
