In this programme, Flauti d’echo celebrates the arrival of spring with music from Germany, England, France and Italy. Cheeky cuckoos, blossoming flowers, dancing shepherds and buffeting winds frame a beautiful pastoral aria, ‘Awake, Thou Wintry Earth’ by J.S. Bach.


Encompassing music from the 14th century to freshly-penned compositions, Flauti d’echo creates repertoire for the recorder through their own arrangements and new commissions. The duo engage a variety of different instrumentalists on a project-to- project basis that allows them to communicate their repertoire to audiences in a wide range of performance settings. The ensemble won the Nancy Nuttal Early Music Prize for Chamber Music in 2016 and is a participant of the BREMF Live! Scheme 2017–18.
