The Amsterdam Loeki Stardust Quartet was founded in 1978 by Daniël Brüggen, Bertho Driever, Paul Leenhouts and Karel van Steenhoven who were students at the Sweelinck Conservatory Amsterdam at that time. The quartet has continually explored the boundaries of the recorder consort. Following its formation, the ensemble's reputation grew quickly and was further strengthened at the 1981 Musica Antiqua Competition in Bruges where, challenging the competition rules, it performed an unusual arrangement of a Stevie Wonder song and emerged as the winner.
