Bassano Quartet

 
 

The Bassano Quartet plays on historically built consort recorders with a length up to almost 3 meters (worlds largest recorder). These hand built instruments come from the workshop of Adriana Breukink. Her instruments are played by famous players and ensembles all over the world. The Bassano Quartet is formed by Adriana Breukink, Ronald Moelker, Saskia Teunisse and Wolf Meyer.


The quartet proudly presents the cd: ‘Torres del Alma - Towers of the Soul’ with highlights of Spanish music from the 15th century manuscript Cancionero Musical de Palacio, around the mystic saint Teresa de Ávila from the 16th century and the 17th century Catalan composer Joan Cabanilles.


Tijdschrift Oude Muziek (NL), December 2010:


"That the Netherlands can be counted as among the worlds best in the field of recorder is exemplified by this cd"


Ivan Moody - Gramophone

"The Bassano Quartet is certainly an impressively virtuoso group absolute masters of the style"


A new program is compiled were the quartet gives the newly designed and innovative Eagle Recorder a prominent role.

A surprising program with different styles from the Middle Ages to contemporary repertoire.
