Nocturne The transition from the Baroque to the classical period was characterized by a re-evaluation of the relationship between humanity and nature. Allegories gave way to real characters and situations. Simplicity and balance became important stylistic elements. At the same time, music was increasingly seen as a pleasant way of passing the time. This was also the time during which the recorder developed into a chamber music instrument for ‘rich gentlemen’. A recorder was sometimes built into a walking stick, so that a flute would always be available for playing a suitable melody during a walk in the country…

Press reviews

Audiophile Audition

Never mind how they got their name, these recorder tootlers are the best!

Gramophone

highly polished, stylish playing and a determination to push the expressive potential of the recorder consort as far as possible. …as a whole, the disc can be recommended to recorder enthusiasts

Tijdschrift Oude Muziek

De Loekies zijn wederom lekker tekeer gegaan om een kwartet van Joh. Chr. Bach of een Symfonie van Sammartini naar hun hand te zetten. (…) (…) Blokfluit liefhebbers, en dat zijn er heel veel, zullen de inspanningen weten te waarderen.

Brabants Dagblad

Loekie Stardust: de meest begane fluitherauten ter wereld.

Limburgs Dagblad

smetteloos ensemblespel, smaakvolle arrangementen en groot stijlbesef van de blazers (…) het kwartet imponeert door zijn gedreven spel en de ronkende klank, die even warm als transparant is (…)

Toccata

Loeki Stardust beweist jedenfalls, dass es weiterhin als eines der fhrenden, wenn nicht berhaupt als das weltbeste Blockfltenquartett einzuschtzen ist.

Magazin für Kammermusik

Wir erleben ein lebendiges, farbiges Musizieren, genau ausgehorcht in allen Schattierungen: vom weichen Raunen der Basslinien bis zum glnzend berblasenen Piccoloregister. Das Programm bietet einen Streifzug durch Barock und Klassik, wobei sich Hits wie Pachelbels Kanon mit Unbekanntem wie Jadins Nocturne mischen. Leider war auf meinem Exemplar die Reihenfolge anders getrackt als angegeben. Magazin für Kammermusik
