We are thrilled to welcome Palisander Recorder Quartet to UofG! The group prides itself on presenting imaginative, historical programmes with a wide range of repertoire; performing largely from memory, on recorders up to 6 feet tall. Described as “Early Music’s very own Spice Girls”, the award-winning recorder quartet is making waves in the industry. Comprised of alumni from the Guildhall School of Music and Drama, Palisander has quickly established itself as a vibrant young ensemble. Devising their own choreography, as well as writing new compositions and unique arrangements for the ensemble, the group’s members are keen ambassadors for the recorder’s versatility. This is brought to life in the exciting theatrical concerts, for which Palisander is known. They have been performing internationally including in Ireland, France, Italy, Greece, Japan and Russia, and at venues including Wigmore Hall, Brighton Festival for Early Music, National Centre for Early Music, London Fashion Week and Cheltenham Music Festival. In 2021, Palisander devised an imaginative ‘recorders-only’ interpretation of Handel’s opera, Partenope, as part of the Göttingen International Handel Festival, Germany. Wigmore Hall, London Fashion Week. They have been featured on Classic FM, BBC Radio 3,   “Palisander – making recorders phenomenally interesting and exciting” – Katie Derham, BBC Radio 3, 2019.
