Dulcis Venti recorder quartet with harpsichordist Francis Knights

Discovering that there was no existing repertoire for recorder quartet with harpsichord, we challenged composers around the world to rectify the situation. In this concert we present the first ever performance of works for this mysteriously neglected ensemble; beautiful and engaging pieces in which the sweetness and coolness of the recorder encounters the bright, clean sound of the harpsichord.

Dulcis Venti is a newly formed recorder quartet, based in East Anglia and directed by Stephen Watkins. http://www.dulcisventi.co.uk

Francis Knights is Director of Studies in Music at Fitzwilliam College, Cambridge and trained as a harpsichordist under Robert Woolley and David Roblou. http://francis-knights.webnode.com
