Flute Alors at the Recorder Festival
I have written about this group, Flute Alors! before.
The musicians as individuals and as a group have been winning accolades in music competitions and for their concerts. The concert at the recorder festival was no exception. To add a little spice, the concert was billed as audience choice. We voted on a choice of two options of pieces for two parts of the concert and pulled names from a hat for two other pieces as to which musician played which line. It certainly keeps them on their toes.
Each of these players possess a dazzling technique (my fingers wish they could move that fast) as well as a facility with a variety of musical styles. I have subscribed to their Montreal series so will be treated to more of their musical offerings over the year. Their website will tell you a little more about them. And for a musical treat
