Paul Dyer says: "Fasten your seat belts because you are in for the ride of your life with Maurice Steger. He's like a stratospheric Speedy Gonzales. This man has totally revolutionised the recorder and his playing is revered around the world."
Steger launches our first series of 2016 with the most challenging, virtuosic piece Vivaldi ever wrote – the Concerto in G major for recorder.
What follows next are masterpieces from giants such as Telemann and Handel – pieces championed by Steger in concerts across the world and for which he has won many prestigious awards. In an inspired partnership, Steger and Paul Dyer co-direct the Orchestra in Australian premieres of works by Gallo, Rittler and Fiorenza, magical treasures Paul has unearthed.
Get ready for the ride and wait to see which of his 20 recorders Maurice chooses to thrill us with!
