Flanders Recorder Quartet


Playing day and workshop for recorder players

With members of the Flanders Recorder Quartet
Bart Spanhove, Paul van Loey and Tom Beets

Sunday 18th March 2018

Venue: St Cecilia’s Hall, Niddry St., Edinburgh EH1 1LG

Calling all recorder players – come and spend the day with three of the four members of the Flanders Recorder Quartet, in one of their last UK appearances before the Quartet disbands later this year.

The workshop takes place on the day following the Flanders Recorder Quartet’s sell-out performance in St Cecilia’s Hall for the Georgian Concert Society.

The Edinburgh branch of the Society of Recorder Players and the Early Music Forum of Scotland are delighted to join forces to present a playing day and tutorial workshop for recorder players, tutored by Tom Beets, Bart Spanhove and Paul van Loey of the Flanders Recorder Quartet.

The day will include:

  1. An all-comers ensemble playing day (big instruments very welcome!). Tom, Bart and Paul will each lead a session. Music will be provided on the day.
  2. Running concurrently with the playing day, a masterclass style tutorial. Individuals and pre­formed groups are invited to perform a prepared short piece of their choice to one of the tutors, who will offer constructive criticism. These sessions will be open to observers and will be suitable for players at all levels. A keyboard will be available (exact type tbc) - if you wish to use this, please provide your own accompanist.

Participants can move between the playing day and masterclass sessions during the day.

  1. A short informal lunchtime concert of baroque music performed by Tom, Bart and Paul - exclusively for registered workshop participants!
  2. Private lessons for individuals or groups may be available, depending on the final timetable. If you are interested in a lesson, please indicate this on the registration form.

The day will start with registration from 10.30am for an 11.00am start, and finish around 4pm.
A detailed schedule will be available closer to the date.
Advance booking is essential.
Please complete the registration form and return it as soon as possible.
