For those who think the recorder is just a boring instrument for young schoolchildren, here is the proof of the opposite!

This CD contains classic works by Handel, Vivaldi and Couperin but also new and exciting works by contemporary composers. Accompanied by a fine chamber ensemble, Australian performer Tamara Gries shows, in the words of Prof. David Tunley (University of Western Australia) that “the recorder is truly a fine and expressive instrument that finds a deserved niche in music of our own century as well as in that from earlier times”.

Reviews

Fanfare

Its virtues far outweigh its shortcomings. Their performances of the contemporary pieces present the high point of this release. Each [composer] has his own strongly defined profile, and each receives fine advocacy here.

This is a marvellous showcase disc for the formidable talents of Tamara Gries…Cronin’s Suite for Recorder and Strings is a minor masterpiece…This is a wonderful disc for the recorder aficionado but it also ought to draw a much wider appeal… all the new music here and much of the old is well worth your attention… an interesting, stimulating and ultimately moving selection of works ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
