Recordings of both contemporary and early music have received
critical acclaim and are frequently played on the BBC as well as
radio stations across Europe. Described as 'exciting',
'dazzling' and with 'phenomenal technique', concerts by The
Flautadors provide a fresh insight into the music they play.
Beautiful and uplifting music popular during FM Alexander's lifetime. In the wonderful acoustics of Hinde Street Church you will hear Shakespearian songs by Delius, Bridge and Gurney, piano works by Scott Joplin and Bill Mayerl, as well as music from Shakespeare's London reflecting the revival of early music at the beginning of the 20th century. Readings place the music in context and give a flavour of FM's lifetime.
