The Bassano Quartet plays on historically built consort recorders with a length up to almost 3 meters (worlds largest recorder). These hand built instruments come from the workshop of Adriana Breukink. Her instruments are played by famous players and ensembles all over the world. The Bassano Quartet is formed by Adriana Breukink, Ronald Moelker, Sanne Vos and Wolf Meyer.
The quartet played in the Early Music Festival in St. Petersburg (Russia) to present their new cd. ‘Torres del Alma – Towers of the Soul’ with highlights of Spanish music from the 15th century manuscript Cancionero Musical de Palacio, around the mystic saint Teresa de Ávila from the 16th century and the 17th century Catalan composer Joan Cabanilles.
A new program is compiled were the quartet gives the newly designed and innovative Eagle Recorder a prominent role.
A surprising program with different styles from the Middle Ages to contemporary repertoire.
