*Contemporary Piece.*

Divided into 4 large sections, clearly distinguished by a different kind of recorder. Includes CD, composer biography, preface and suggestions as to interpretation.

Chiel Meijering was born in 1954 in Amsterdam. He studied composition with Ton de Leeuw, percussion under Jan Labordus and Jan Pustjens and piano at the Sweelinck Conservatorium in Amsterdam. He has written a large number of works that are performed regularly in the Netherlands. His oeuvre contains various works for recorder. The most well known piece is presumably 'Sitting Ducks', a commission for the Amsterdam Loeki Stardust Quartet. For many ensembles this piece has become standard repertoire. 

Chiel Meijering's music is characterised by a mixture of classical contemporary music, minimal music, jazz, rock and pop that the composer fuses in a most original manner. There is probably no type of music that Meijering has not tried his hand at and no combination of instruments he would back away from. Accordingly he has written numerous works for recorder ensemble as well as pieces for recorders in combination with other instruments. 

Please tell me more for recorder and piano was written on suggestion by the recorder player and pianist Daniel Koschitzki and was composed in spring 2007. The first performance took place in September 2007 with Andrea Ritter (recorder) and Daniel Koschitzki (piano) during the 6th International Recorder Festival in Montreal.
