Description: From the Elizabethan period through the Baroque, recorders were used to evoke love, death, gods, angels, birds, pastoral scenes and the presence of
royalty and nobility. Recorders possess a singularly unique sound and the power to create mood and stir emotion.
In this workshop, we will explore these unique qualities by playing a mix of evocative recorder repertoire spanning 400+ years. We will apply techniques specific to tone, articulation, dynamics and phrasing that heighten the mood and enhance the emotional character of the music.
