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.

 

Works include:
O Domine, Jesu Christe  -  Fransisco Guererro
Wicked   -  Michiel Mensingh

 Foxey Lady   -  Jimi Hendrix, arr. BLOCK4

Stargazing

Join us as we trace a line through the night sky. Combining centuries of music inspired by art and the heavens, Stargazing showcases the diverse possibilities of the recorder ensemble, including a new work commissioned by BLOCK4 in 2019. 

 

Works include: 

Bardo #1  -  Andrew Crossley

Stella Splendens  -  Anon. (13th C) arr. BLOCK4

Le Rey au Soleyl  -  Johannes Ciconia
