Specialist recorder players have recently been treated to a day of masterclasses and consultation lessons given by recorder master, Anna Stegmann. Anna lives in Amsterdam but regularly visits the UK to teach at the Royal Academy of Music in London and to give classes nationally. Pupils presented a variety of contemporary repertoire and Anna’s advice on performance was particularly well received.
This was closely followed by ‘RecorderWorks’, a recital given in Wells Cathedral as part of the ‘new music wells’ festival. Wells pupils are always well represented in this festival and it was good to see recorder players of all ages taking part.
