The Flautadors recorder quartet are the UK's leading recorder ensemble and celebrate 20 years of making music together with a recording of some of their most popular contemporary music. 'bavardage', their 5th album and 2nd on FHR, shows an appealing mix of minimalist, folk & global influences, from selected works of particular significance from Europe, Asia and America. Performed on 56 different recorders, The Flautadors showcase the tonal spectrum of the recorder through many different forms but all with a common root - simplicity and clarity of musical expression or sound. This recording features premiere recordings including De la Salle written by 2016 British Composer Award winner, Leo Chadburn. "the repertoire is delightful, the playing first-rate, and the recorded sound ideal" (Fanfare) "expertly and beautiful performed" (American Record Guide) "Beautifully poised and deliciously played" (Gramophone).
