I am looking for recorder players with a preference for larger recorders i.e. Tenor and Bass who can perform solos to a (very) good standard.
What am I on about?
My Aim: performances of “Musical Soirées”, ca. 1 hour programmes (10-15 pieces) of 19th century light entertainment music. This won’t generate a lot of money at first but has the potential to become a sought after unique kind of concert act. Suitable for concerts/recitals as well as period re-enactments!
I want to promote a musical genre that is quite common in Germany, Austria, Tchecoslovakia, Belgian ect. but seems to be either lost in time or simply under-developed over here. In Germany this genre is called “Salonmusik” or –when performed in spas- “Kurmusik/Kurkonzert”. There are many ensembles and even full orchestras all over the place who don’t play anything else. (And can be very successful! e.g. Andre Rieu)
I am a classically trained concert pianist, conductor, musicologist and music publisher.
I’m not necessarily looking for a virtuoso player but somebody who can imagine embarking on and promoting non-mainstream music for recorders. About 99% of the pieces haven’t been performed for at least 100 years. Most definitely not the way we have edited and (re)published them.
As “BrassOrigins” we perform these programmes as a part-recital, part-conversation musical soirées. Have a look at our Facebook page to find out more about us and what we do: https://www.facebook.com/brass.origins
As an enthusiastic amateur recorder player I’d love to promote this genre for the recorder as a versatile all round musical instrument, as well. I’d prefer to find a recorder player (Tenor/Bass) in the South Wales region but this isn’t the main requirement with modern technology at hand (mp3 e.g.).

We are a baroque-inspired duo, with an open mind towards performing earlier music. We are looking for soloists who have access to instruments at 415 pitch ie treble/ tenor and we also have a spare Treble (Rottenburgh) which we are happy to loan out to keen and enthusiastic players who do not have access to an instrument pitched at 415.
We invite players of all suitable instruments to gather together to play trio-sonatas, or even quartets. This can also involve a mixed ensemble of woodwind and strings. Telemann, for example, wrote many pieces which happily combine such forces.
We enjoy the challenge of sight-reading works unknown to us, provided by such players. We have formed a small library of suitable works which we are keen to expand on an ongoing basis. We would also be delighted to hear from recorder players who have forged contacts with baroque cellists or gamba players with whom to create a balanced basso continuo.
We are not supremely advanced players as our own time to reach higher standards is rather restricted. When we do play, we enjoy the end results and we therefore seek players holding a similar point of view.
We also offer full catering and hospitality to all players as we don’t want to see people starve nor go thirsty.!
I play a single-manual harpsichord made by Alan Gotto of Norwich (1981) My wife plays Treble recorder and Traverso flutes. We operate on an informal basis and our playing locations are pretty flexible, including Fenton House in Hampstead as well as local churches and historic buildings here in Northamptonshire. We do not charge for demo/ workshop appearances at any of the above as we play at a purely amateur level.

I am a 27 year old recorder player living in London looking for others to play with. I studied recorder under Louise Bradbury, Annabel Knight, Peter Robinson (Trinity College of Music) and others in Hertfordshire, London and Birmingham for many years, attended various courses and workshops over the years and majored in small ensemble (trio sonata) performance at Birmingham University. Unfortunately I have not been actively playing for a few years and miss it dreadfully, and am now seeking others of a similar standard to play with. I am currently mostly interested in just performing for pleasure with other baroque enthusiasts, but if the opportunity to perform on some level is there in the future then wouldn’t turn it down I am ideally seeking other recorder players who need/would like another player for duets, consorts or other ensemble formations, or a trio sonata ensemble who might need another player, or perhaps just a harpsichord and gamba player looking for someone else to play with. I have 4’40 and 4’15 altos and 4’40 descant here in London, and a small library of trio sonata and solo music to bring to the tablle.
I look forward to hearing from anyone who is interested!
