Accomplished soloists Lisette Kielson, Mirja Lorenz, Patrick O’Malley, and Laura Osterlund have joined forces to explore the vast repertoire for recorder ensemble. “Surfing the Channel” is a musical journey along the shores of England and France. From the innovative rhythms of the French Middle Ages to the distinctive chromaticism of the English Renaissance consort, CRQ tours six centuries along the English Channel, which connects and separates these two lands.
