About the Authors
  • This is the first book to offer a complete introduction to the recorder. Eight contributors from four different countries write on topics such as the recorder and its music through the centuries, the recorder as orchestral instrument, the professional recorder player through history and today, and the phenomenon of the recorder revival. The Companion also contains basic reference material previously unavailable in one volume. A special feature is the rich collection of illustrations that provide a history of the instrument. The Cambridge Companion to the Recorder will be of interest to performers and students as well as to music enthusiasts.

    • First book to provide accessible history, performance information, reference material for the student, teacher and amateur
    • History of the recorder documented in the numerous illustrations, some rare
    • Contributors are major performers and specialists

    Reviews & endorsements

    "It is probably the best, and certainly the most current, book-length, general survey of the instrument....The chapters make for excellent reading....I highly recommend The Cambridge Companion to the Recorder....The writing is concise and scholarly, providing thoughtful summaries by seven contributors who have spent much of their lives working in recorder research. This, combined with many wonderful illustrations, makes The Cambridge Companion to the Recorder an enjoyable and worthy addition (or beginning) to your music library." Mark Davenport, American Recorder
