Few instruments were as popular with gentleman musicians in England in the years around 1700 as the recorder. German virtuoso Dorothee Oberlinger and harpsichordist Peter Kofler explore the repertory those enthusiasts would have known, spanning a colourfully cosmopolitan mix of English, German and Italian masters familiar and unfamiliar.

‘Oberlinger plays with dazzling virtuosity and sportive caprice which lend charm to each and every one of the pieces.’
BBC Music Magazine
