Conductor Ensemble Composers

Notes & Reviews:

'If there is a better recorder ensemble than the ALSQ I have yet to hear it, and here it is reproduced with as splendid sound and balance as you are likely to encounter in a long time. If you enjoy hearing in clear detail the spinning of lines into unfamiliar webs of aural beauty, this record was made for you.' Gramophone, February 1992

Baker & Taylor CD Hotlist
Your library may already own one or more of the four discs reissued here, but if not, jump at the chance to acquire them in this convenient and nicely-priced box. The celebrated recorder quartet tackles arrangements of chamber and orchestral works by the likes of Merula, Heinichen, Schickhardt, Telemann, Vivaldi, Bach, Sweelinck, and Purcell, and on the final disc takes a whimsical journey through time up to (almost) the present day, ending with some Beatles arrangements. The Loeki Stardust Quartet's playing sets the international standard for recorder ensembles, and is consistently thrilling.
