B-Five Recorder Consort
Markus Bartholomé, Katelijne Lanneau, Thomas List, Silja-Maaria Schütt, Mina Voet

The ensemble was born some time ago: in 2003, five young students of recorder at the Barcelona Conservatory so impressed their teacher with their ensemble playing that he encouraged them to continue playing professionally. The five followed the recommendation and continued to perfect their sound together – in the meantime, B-Five has become one of the most successful ensembles of its kind in the world. In their latest recording, the Renaissance specialists – reinforced by lutenist Sofie Vanden Eynde – dedicate themselves to an Italian father-son duo with the same name. Alfonso Ferrabosco Senior and Junior travelled widely in 16th and early 17th century Europe and combined many influences in their colourful music. They bring this rarely played music to life with deft interplay and organic sound shaping and let Ferrabosco’s pavanes and allemand dance between frivolous hunger for life and level-headed composure. A special treat of this production is the booklet, for which Annemarie Peeters specially wrote a short story freely associated with the music and highly worth reading.
