The recorder is traditionally primarily an ensemble instrument–but what do you do with a wind instrument during an airborne pandemic? This program explores several ways that the recorder may play unaccompanied: music where the bass line is explicitly optional; ways that a single player may cover multiple lines; and original unaccompanied repertoire. In this program, virtuoso musician Emily O’Brien borrows from the stringed instrument works of Ortiz and Bach, the wind repertoire of Bassano and Boismortier, and she’ll present the premiere of a new work by Michael O'Brien for the solo recorder that commemorates our collective emergence from the pandemic.
