Hearing my first sounds of this year’s BOAC Marathon: Quartet New Generation, four recorders and electronics. Unexpectedly powerful and amazing resonant sound in the Winter Garden. A welcome aesthetic on this hot humid day.
They are now going to play a piece by Paul Moravic that I am very interested in hearing. Twenty different recorders used, moving from bass to soprano registers. It has a contemporary lyricism and contrapuntal structure. Cannot get enough of the sound of these instruments in this glass and marble cathedral size space. QNQ is making a big impression.
