Throughout her extraordinary career, Michala Petri has embraced both the historical and the modern side of the recorder, mastering the entirety of its repertoire, from the Baroque to the 21st century. Yet, her great mission has been to bring her simple, yet versatile, instrument into the modern concert hall.
Since the founding of OUR Recordings with Lars Hannibal back in 2006, Michala has set out to document her musical journey, presenting the extraordinary range of new concert works she has commissioned.
Beginning with her Grammy nominated CD “Movements” which featured an international roster of composers, Michala has recorded albums showcasing contemporary recorder concertos from China and the UK. But home is where the heart is, and so for the latest stop on her musical itinerary, she presents the works of three native Danish and Faroese composers.
