Maurice Steger is a man who fears nothing.
Steger, the world’s leading baroque recorder soloist, is a virtuoso capable of unleashing an impossible torrent of notes one moment, and the most lyrical, heartbreaking phrase the next.
He launches our first series of 2016 with the most challenging, virtuosic piece Vivaldi ever wrote – the Concerto in G major for recorder.
What follows next are masterpieces from giants such as Telemann and Handel – pieces championed by Steger in concerts across the world and for which he has won many prestigious awards. In an inspired partnership, Steger and Paul Dyer co-direct the Orchestra in Australian premieres of works by Gallo, Rittler and Firenza, magical treasures Paul has unearthed.
Fasten your seatbelts and wait to see which of his 20 recorders Maurice chooses to thrill us with.
