My first and ongoing project is the study and historical performance of music using archeologically informed instruments and techniques. For example, for Medieval music I use recorders modeled after a small 14th century instrument recently unearthed in Tartu, Estonia. The playing requirements and sound of these recorders is quite unique; they seem designed precisely for the music of the time. The same goes for my other instruments as well. Being that much closer to such early people & their culture enlivens the music; it’s a bit of forgotten beauty reborn into the present. Contact.
Seeking recorder players and other musicians to participate in projects geared towards performance. Ability is not a big deal; desire is. There’s plenty of music for serious musicians of any ability. Following are some projects I have in mind; but I would like to hear your ideas as well. And I would like to hear from accompanists as well.
In the future I’d like to participate in a concert that includes this instrumentation, of which Hunt, Linde, and Lasoki have written on. Here’s a list:
All of these compositions are of intermediate level, albeit with lots of room for finesse and style.
