New voice for early music

Early music in a new way, new music inspired by old masters. The Orchestra of the Eighteenth Century joins forces with recorder player and singer Lucie Horsch for a programme that puts the recorder front and centre, giving a new voice to early music, also literally. Lucie Horsch does not only play the recorder; she sings as well. With concertos by Vivaldi and Bach, some of them arrangements, and a brand new work by Reza Namavar. 

The name ‘recorder’ comes from the Latin ‘ricordare la voce’. Which translates to: ‘remembering the voice’. Lucie Horsch takes on the challenge. She plays the recorder in Bach’s harpsichord concerto, in an arrangement by Frans Brüggen, renowned recorder player and founder of the Orchestra of the Eighteenth Century. In the second part, Lucie sings. As she steps away from the recorder, she embraces the vocal roots of this concert: Bach’s very own aria Stirb in mir, Welt from the cantata Gott soll allein mein Herze haben.
