The FR2 combines intimate and flawless ensemble play with effective programming.

Flanders Recorder Duo has been giving recorder workshops as well as concerts since 2013, visiting England, Scotland, Belgium, Germany and the USA. Their unique and effective programming presents the recorder as a fully-fledged musical instrument both in early music and conventional concert series. Click here for their concert repertoire list.

The recorder duo might not have an explosive dynamical reach nor tons of world-class repertoire, but when FR2 showcases the recorder’s colours and feathers, sizes and styles, the audience surely will be amazed.

Their first CD came out beginning July 2021 on the Aeolus label. It features a splendid variety of styles and era’s, two contemporary commissions and the word premiere of the duets for pipes by Ralph Vaughan-Williams. Exciting!
