In the musical landscape of the sixteenth century there was little place for 'Dutch' composers in the strict sense of the word. […] Due to the favourable cultural and economic climate the region developed into a breeding ground for renaissance polyphony. […] On this CD, the step from the past to the present is a small one.

The Amsterdam Loeki Stardust Quartet was founded in 1978. Its unusual name derives from one of the Quartet's first arrangements: the Loeki the Lion melody from Dutch television commercials. Their recording of 'Virtuoso Recorder Music' (L'Oiseau Lyre 414 277-1) received an Edison Award in 1986. The jury observed that 'Their intensely musical performance, their great devotion and evident pleasure in playing draw attention immediately to the music itself. Playing of this standard is seldom heard on a first recording'.

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.

Review
The Loeki Stardust Quartet play a variety of recorders from sopranino to sub-contrabass producing heavenly harmony. They offer a wonderful take on truly great but often difficult or unapproachable music. The recording is excellent. So good is it that the close miking may have you reaching for your distortion metre - don't panic: it's just the sound of spittle and air in the mouthpiece of some of the bass instruments.
A delightlful disc!

This limited edition for the Haydn Bi-Centenary is a bargin price reissue of renowned Aeolian Quartet recordings from the 1970's. They are brilliantly played the late analogue sound has been well remastered by Decca. It is strange there are so few complete recordings of these quartets as the music is quite superb. From the early 'divertimento' type pieces through to the profound later works there is never a dull moment.

John Abercrombie Quartet: Up and Coming Starting the new year with, if not precisely a bang, a nevertheless unforgettable record whose strength lies in pristine lyricism, nuanced group interplay and writing that capitalizes on the entire quartet's appreciation of subtlety over gymnastics and refined lyricism over angularity, John Abercrombie's Up and Coming—ECM's first release of the year—is also founded strongly on the concept of relationship. The guitarist has been playing with Marc Copland since the pianist's days in the early '70s as a saxophonist before deserting it entirely for a career and discography that's as rich and rewarding as Abercrombie's…
