Event description

Description

Experience the rich and varied sound of the recorder brought to life by Canberra Recorder and Early Music Society (CREMS) within the unique acoustic environment of the High Court of Australia. The recorder is one of the very few instruments that can claim a repertoire extending from the eleventh century to the present day. Sacred and secular music, dance tunes and opera compositions, folk, jazz, contemporary and avant garde works, even romantic music written for Csakan (pretty much a recorder in disguise) as well as various recorder ensemble arrangements of classical orchestra compositions form the enormous content of this instrument’s repertoire. CREMS is delighted to showcase the renaissance sound in contrast to the contemporary style, the romantic repertoire for orchestra in comparison with the jazzy ensemble, and more. If you have ever considered the recorder to be limited this concert will change your mind.

The Canberra Recorder & Early Music Society (CREMS) was founded in 1974 and is a friendly, non-auditioned group of recorder players of different ages from Canberra and the surrounding region. Enjoying playing early and modern music in ensembles and recorder orchestra, CREMS holds monthly playing sessions and other workshops in Canberra plus twice yearly weekend-long workshops in Bundanoon in association with the Sydney Society of Recorder Players.

Led by Barbara Jerjen CREMS invites you on a journey to experience the versatility of the recorder throughout history.
