Listen: Flanders Recorder Quartet Explores Complexities of the Instrument
Monday, August 08, 2016
Founded in 1987, the Flanders Recorder Quartet returned to the Frick Collection last winter, the first time in more than a decade, to present an evening of Renaissance and Baroque music. The musicians — Tom Beets, Paul Van Loey, Joris Van Goethem and Bart Spanhove — brought with them 40 recorders of different sizes for the concert. In between performances, the members explain why this instrument much more than "the ukulele of early music."
WQXR's Elliott Forrest hosts the program.
