Description: An appealing new recording of modern, tuneful works for recorder which celebrates the friendship between composer and soloist. Having written a part for the recorder virtuoso in his opera about the life and times of the philosopher Spinoza, Loevendie has proceeded to compose several other works which marry the Baroque idiom of the recorder’s natural home with his own, jazz-inflected idiom. Most notable among them is the recorder concerto Nachklang, inspired by the Third Brandenburg of Bach. Erik Bosgraaf (recorders), Theo Loevendie (piano), Oene van Geel (viola), Diamanda Le Berge Dramm (violin), Carl Rosman (clarinet).
