The baroque period in classical music is unquestionably my favourite. I have a deep-rooted love for all things Bach, Vivaldi, and Telemann. As a teenager I was so besotted with these composers and their peers that I decided to focus all of my musical energy into my studies of the recorder. Believe it or not, the recorder isn’t always a horrid black and white plastic thing that is capable of destroying the ear drums of unsuspecting parents. If you don’t believe me then listen to this.
