Sunday Baroque
The late recorder virtuoso and conductor Frans Bruggen once said that a "special kind of mentality" is required to play the recorder, because it seems like such a simple, basic instrument, yet it possesses the potential to be extremely expressive and virtuosic. Sunday Baroque will feature some of Frans Bruggen's expressive and virtuosic artistry.
