The Flanders Recorder Quartet

A choice from audience favourites that the Flanders Recorder Quartet played around the world in the past decades during their special Jukebox Concerts, where audiences could choose the programme through interactive digital means. Not bad to have three pieces of this Dutch composer here, with the ubiquitous Kadanza providing the opening track in a highly crispy performance, next Catch (an Angel) and finally the brand new Stamping Ground (for Angels) - possibly in the expectation that this piece, too, will become an audience favourite.

Inspired by the Bells

One contemporary (Dutch) piece is included, my ‘Van heinde en verre (From near and from afar)’.
