It sometimes seems that whole groups of traditional instruments have fallen into neglect as casualties of musical “progress.” But thankfully the campaigns to rehabilitate the harpsichord,
lute, cornet, and recorder haven’t gone away.

In Lucie Horsch we have a leading ambassador for the recorder, which has claim to being the most charming classical instrument ever invented. The Decca-signed teenager is the “latest
big thing in recorder playing” (The Guardian) who possesses “fearsome virtuosity and superb technique” (BBC Music Magazine).

At the MCO, we can’t help but feel sorry for those who missed her performance with us in 2016, a sleeper hit of the season. Nearly everyone is obliged to play the recorder in elementary school.

But where most of us squawked and hooted, Horsch fluttered and trilled with the graceful agility of a master quickly in the making.

Born into a family of professional musicians, seventeen-year-old Lucie Horsch began to study the recorder at the age of five. Things seem to have fallen quickly into place since then: at nine
a televised performance of hers caused something of a national sensation, in her early teens she represented The Netherlands at Eurovision, and in 2016 she was awarded the prestigious Concertgebouw Young Talent Award.

About her debut CD with Decca records, BBC Music Magazine writes, “This is a disc to buy, and display in years to come as the start of a distinguished career.”

Hear her perform the music of Bach and Vivaldi in true baroque style at our April 2018 concert. You may never see another recorder player, or teenager, as musically gifted as her.
