THE FRQ: These fantastic four from Belgium are acclaimed around the world as performers, teachers, and arrangers. Celebrating 25 years as an award-winning ensemble, they have performed more than 1800 concerts in 42 countries on 5 continents. The FRQ mesmerizes audiences with its mastery of an extraordinary collection of over 150 recorders, ranging from the tiny garklein to a “super bass” 8 feet tall. In the United States they have concertized and taught from the East Coast to the West Coast, and are popular workshop and master class teachers at summer events including the Amherst Early Music Festival and the Texas Toot.
“Vier op ‘n Rij” (“Four in a row) is the FRQ’s nickname at home – Tom Beets, Paul van Loey, Bart Spanhove and Joris van Goethem (left to right in photo). Each individual member of the FRQ is an accomplished artist in his own right. Bart and Joris will be our leaders for the FRQ Phoenix workshop. Joris is a gifted arranger and his arrangements have even made their way to Hollywood! Bart’s book The Finishing Touch of Ensemble Playing was published in 2000, and books based on his recent study of the art and science of practicing are coming soon: A Maze of Challenges: 1001 Tips for Practicing Music and The Technique of Recorder Playing: Fundamentals for the Maniac and Virtuoso.
THE FRQ ARIZONA WEEKEND: In March 2014 the FRQ will trade in the cloudy skies of Flanders for a full weekend of sunshine and warmth in Arizona. The Saturday, March 8, FRQ recorder workshop in Phoenix is sponsored by the Desert Pipes, the Phoenix ARS chapter (http://www.desertpipes.org/). The FRQ perform in Tucson on Sunday afternoon, March 9, on the Arizona Early Music Society series (http://www.azearlymusic.org/Flanders.htm). On Monday evening, March 10, they will perform at Northern Arizona University in Flagstaff (http://nau.edu/CAL/Music/Events/Horizons-Concert-Series/).
