The Flanders Recorder Quartet (Bart Spanhove, Tom Beets, Paul Van Loey, Joris Van Goethem) has been thriving for more than 20 years and has developed into an ensemble that counts among the world top. After more than 1500 performances at the most coveted venues the ensemble has become a fixture in the world of early music. The quartet made about twenty pioneering CDs, with often unknown repertoire, and created about forty new compositions dedicated to the quartet. After two hundred years of neglect, The Flanders Recorder Quartet brings the recorder to the fore again. In an attractive way the ensemble convinces music lovers with an exceptional collection of 150 instruments, both replicas of period instruments and contemporary instruments. The daring and unique programmes, the expressive style of performance, the brilliant execution and the wilful distinctive features of the four recorder players have been acclaimed in the international press, from De Standaard (B) to the New York Times.
