Hans-Martin Linde (b. 1930) is not only one of the best-known recorder players of the twentieth Century, but has enriched the contemporary recorder repertoire with significant works for concert performance and tuition purposes. The composition Reminiscences for Quartet, for the unusual and delightful-sounding combination A[treble]/T/T/B, uses musical themes from the 15th to 17th Centuries: from a “Prélude à l'imitation” by Froberger, a melody by Claudio Saraceni “Da te parto”, themes from keyboard sonatas by Domenico Scarlatti, the Chanson “Adieu, mes très belles” by Binchois and a ground bass from Purcell's harpsichord collection “Musik's Handmaid”. The composer writes: “In many of my compositions a meeting takes place between old and new. In this Suite, too, present events unfold against the background of the past. Models from early music are mirrored in the present.”.
