Recorder and Harpsichord Recital ~Revival in retrospect~


Naomi Okuda (recorders) and Pawel Swiczak (harpsichord) present a fascinating programme of music for recorder and harpsichord from the 18th and 20th centuries using period instruments.

For more than a century the ‘Early Music movement’ has influenced a steady move towards playing music from earlier times on original instruments or carefully crafted copies.

In this concert Naomi and Pawel look back at the revival of interest in period instruments, using a pair original instruments typical of the mid 20th century contrasted with excellent copies of 18th century instruments.

Using an original Dolmetsch recorder and Goble harpsichord with leather plectra, paired with historically informed copies of a Flemish harpsichord and treble recorder, Naomi and Pawel explore aspects the early music revival presenting not only 18th but also 20th century music played on period instruments.
