[email protected] Live: Laoise O'Brien - recorders 'For The Record'

Sunday, 12 December 2021, 12.00pm

Welcome back to Sundays at Noon live concerts in the beautiful sculpture hall of the Hugh Lane Gallery.

'For The Record'

Laoise O’Brien has spent the past twenty-five years championing an instrument often unfairly perceived as an instrument of torture. The particular sonority of a mass of small plastic recorders has left an unfortunate legacy on an instrument once known as the ‘sweet flute’.

Join Laoise as she embarks on a journey to tell the story of the recorder and its development during the ages. Part historical account, part personal voyage, Laoise will introduce you to the various sizes and styles of recorder, the vast amount of repertoire spanning nine centuries, and the many different uses for which the instrument was employed; from dances on the village green, to music composed by kings.
