Piers Adams’ best-selling disc of virtuoso recorder music from 1590-1830 was recorded 25 years ago but remains a classic today.   Named after a charming piece by the Dutch 17th century musician Van Eyck, the album explores a wealth of music by well known baroque composers – Bach, Corelli, Telemann – alongside lesser-known masters, and culminates in the flamboyant music of early 19th century czakan (keyed recorder) artist Ernst Kraehmer.  A wide-ranging recital which will delight all recorder fans.

“A scintillating survey of recorder music spanning three centuries. Dispatched with wit, lightly-worn bravado and captivating expressivity.”

BBC MUSIC MAGAZINE Sep 2012 (re-release)

“I can commend his disc without the slightest hesitation. This is virtuoso music played with great panache and apparently effortless artistry by a virtuoso of the highest order. Amazing technical feats are accomplished with self-effacing modesty· Piers Adams coaxes the instrument into an expressiveness I had not thought possible.”
THE RECORDER MAGAZINE

“This is well worth remembering as a gift for any young recorder player in the family. The only danger is that having heard Adams they might not want to pick up the instrument again – I don’t think I would!”
