"For the recorder player wishing to acquire an insight into the many aspects of our instrument and learn to see facts not only as "how to do" but also as an inspiration. The Cambrdige Companion to the Recorder is warmly recommended", writes Daniel Bruggen in his foreword to this comprehensive survey. Seven contributors from four countries write on topics such as the recorder and its music through the centuries, the use of recorders in an orchestra, professional recorder players and their instruments, the revival of the recorder, and its role in education. Other chapters bring together basic reference material hitherto unavailable in one volume. A special reature of the book is its rich collection of illustrations, along with an intriguing demonstration of its changing role in music life.
The Cambridge Companion to the Recorder has been written to expand the horizons of all those who love the instrument. It will prove invaluable to amateur and professional recorder players alike, as well as to enthusiasts and scholars.
