that's My World, & ABC Wednesday, L for Loeki Stardust







Again recorder music, which is part of My World. This time it's the well known and famous Dutch group "Loeki Stardust" .
The Amsterdam Loeki Stardust Quartet is a professional Dutch recorder quartet which was founded in 1978 by four students of the Sweelinck Conservatory Amsterdam; Daniël Brüggen, Bertho Driever, Paul Leenhouts and Karel van Steenhoven.During the last 30 years, the Amsterdam Loeki Stardust Quartet has enjoyed an international career and are recognized as a serious ensemble of unparalleled virtuosity. They have appeared together at many early music festivals including those in Berlin, Utrecht, London and Sapporo, and regularly tour throughout Europe, the USA and Japan. They also perform separate from festivals in concert halls. In 1998, 2001, 2004, Queen Beatrix of the Netherlands requested the quartet to perform for her during official festivities. This will happen again in 2009.
This is my entry for ABC Wednesday too.

Ik ben dan wel een Hollander maar als ik heel eerlijk ben heb ik nog nooit gehoord van deze muzikanten.
Ik ben een muziekliefhebber maarja er zijn ook zoveel bekendheden.
Leuke keuze het klinkt mooi :)
Mijn dochters speelde vroeger blokfluit :)

Fijne avond

For many years my late first husband and I played in an early music group, playing recorders, cornamusen and such like. I love that quartet - recorders make such a beautiful clear sound reader wil don't they?

Anya said...

Het is echt eerste klas muziek !!
Bedankt voor de info :)

I enjoyed listening, I had never heard of that group before.
Your MyWorld link has a typo, by the way and doesn't work.

Recorder is new to me but I really like it. It sounds like it belongs a few centuries back. I love the images they invoke.

Vicki Lane said...

Etje said...

Had er nog nooit van gehoord, maar na het beluisteren vind ik het wel spijtig dat ze niet meer bekendheid hebben. Ga hier op het net toch nog eens achter zoeken.

Groetjes

Aren't you clever, posting two memes in one. Another lesson I learn from you.

There is something so mystical about the sound of the recorder. It just transports me back to another era.

Janie said...

They make beautiful music, indeed. I enjoyed the video.

Beautiful, Wil. I had my 9 year old granddaughter, Audrey, come in to watch and listen as she plays a recorder at school in the 4th grade.

Lovely!

Rose said...

I am just amazed by the beautiful music that these musicians produce with these instruments. I was babysitting my two-year-old grandson tonight, who loves to "play" the recorder we have. Of course, it's just a plastic one used by one of my kids in primary school, so all he could produce were squeaks and squawks:) A far cry from Bach:)

Hildred and Charles said...

Oh Reader, I enjoyed that so much. Thank you for posting thee wonderful musicians.

Lovely European instrument, Wil!

Gorgeous music! I enjoyed that very much.

Roger Owen Green said...

It seems like a simple instrument, the recorder. I have one somewhere, but don't play it like that! Great morning music.

swapnap said...

Thank You for introducing them, would have never had a chance to hear this.

jabblog said...

Recorder is not my favourite instrument (too many years teaching young children the basics) so it's good to hear some 'proper' musicians showing what can be achieved.

Paula Scott said...

Wow!! Amazing. Stunning. And, simply lovely!
Thanks!

Ann said...

They are beautiful. You must be proud of them.

Etje said...

Kom je een fijne en hopelijk droge dag toewensen

Janice Thomson said...

Most enjoyable Wil. Our pipeband uses recorders when practicing.

Mike said...

Wow, I'm so glad you visited my blog and I was able to find you! I studied recorder at the Conservatorium in The Hague and I just LOVE Loeki Stardust. You can find some of my playing at my blog here. Thanks for reading my story too :)

Lovely and soothing music. I used to play the recorder when I lived in San Francisco – but now it is in its box. I really enjoyed listening to your clip. Listening and closing your eyes, the music can transport you to wonderful places.
