BRISK + Ramon Lormans – percussion
Of course the quartet is strong enough to hit the nail on the head, but the cooperation with the percussionist Ramon Lormans makes them even more unbeatable. Hans Koolmees wrote a new work for recorder quartet and percussion for which he was inspired by early repertoire. In this programme, other new music by Seung Ah Oh, Michiel Mensingh and Ron Ford is combined with medieval Estampitas and Batallas, and with dance music from the Renaissance in arrangements by BRISK and Ramon Lormans. There is much to be heard and to be seen: Ramon Lormans plays the marimba and various other percussion instruments, and BRISK plays on cylindrical recorders made after examples from the late Middle Ages, on Renaissance recorders and on modern instruments.
