This project is for the Recorder Co-op to purchase a pearwood Quint-Bass Renaissance recorder in Bb, made in two pieces. This handmade recorder will complete a set of Renaissance instruments that The Recorder Co-op share, opening up centuries of music that we haven’t yet been able to perform.

As far as we are aware, it will be the only instrument of its type in Australia!

The Recorder Co-op is excited about exploring the unique ensemble sound that the Bb bass will make possible. We look forward to commissioning new works for our instruments by Australian composers and sharing our music with audiences.

Renaissance recorders are different in construction to the more common Baroque models and are always played in matched sets – which is why this recorder is so important! This instrument will complete a matched recorder consort built by Danish recorder maker Ture Bergstrøm. It will allow us to play a matched set of ‘low recorders’ for the first time.

With the donations The Recorder Co-op will be able to use this instrument in a number of ways including:

1. Concerts showcasing our Renaissance recorder collection including the Quint Bass which will allow us to showcase repertoire we previously were unable to perform.

2. Two concerts in 2019 with at least two commissioned pieces by Australian composers for renaissance ensemble.

3. A second concert to inspire and mentor promising young recorder players, following on from our successful project in 2018.

4. Workshops educating the musical community about the recorder and its consort repertoire.

The Recorder Co-op is a recorder quartet made up of some of Australia’s most well-known recorder players, including Ruth Wilkinson, Hannah Coleman, Alexandra Bailliet-Joly and Ryan Williams.

Comfortable with many musical styles The Recorder Co-op play recorder repertoire from the Medieval, Renaissance, Baroque eras all the way to the present day. One of the Recorder Co-op’s missions is to commission new works for the recorder, drawing from the deep past these special instruments speak to contemporary Australia.

Performed on matched recorder consorts built by Danish recorder maker Ture Bergstrøm and New Zealand recorder maker David Coomber, this ensemble brings back the authentic sounds of the Renaissance era.
