Baldrick Deerenberg (Amsterdam) studied recorder with Frans Brüggen at the Conservatory of The Hague. He made many recordings for L.P., CD, radio and TV. He played concerts and taught at courses in many European countries, Canada and Israel. He programmed music in almost all combinations of music for the recorder: Middle Ages, Renaissance, Baroque and Modern. He used to play Van Eyck together with singers as Alfred Deller, James Bowman and Max Van Egmond. Both this and his working together with Anthony Rooley, Andrew Parrot and Emma Kirkby settled his name. With Kees Rosenhart he played many concerts for recorder and organ at historical organs all around in Holland. This excited his interest for historical instruments and their construction. With the "Antwerp Recorder Consort" (with Bart Koen, Koen Dieltiens, Peter De Clerq and Patrick Denecker) he played many concerts: a.o. with original instruments in the Instrumental Museum of Berlin. As member of the famous Huelgas Ensemble (Paul Van Nevel) he got acquainted with many (often unedited) compositions of the Renaissance.With "The Great Charm" (with Gudrun Herb, Frank Agsteribbe and Mark Lambrecht) he explored the repertoire for two recorders and Basso Continuo."With "Vaghezze di Musica" he programmes late Renaissance Polyphone - and early Baroque music for recorder and chant.His contact with the Dutch composer Jacques Bank resulted in a series of compositions for recorder, mostly with other instruments. Besides that he played many first performances of compositions made for him a.o. by Rob du Bois ("Songs of innocence", with René Jacobs), Frans van Doorn("Symphony", for Greatbassrecorder and Tape), Alexandre Hrisanide, Bart de Kemp, Jos Kunst ("Any two", with Harry Sparnaay), Nigel Osborne("Passers by", with Florian Kitt), Joep Straesser("Duplum"). He builds and plays his own instruments: Together with colleague Heiko ter Schegget, in order of the Utrecht Conservatory he constructed a great double- consort of Renaissance Recorders (14 instruments from c" till F) Besides that he realized a couple of performances of Bach’s "The Art of the Fugue", for harpsichord and 4 recorderplayers (instruments from c" to F, at pitch A= 415).
As teacher (Conservatories of Groningen, Amsterdam, Utrecht, Antwerp) he developed a very personal way to instruct his pupils. For this he is inspired by Zen, Alexandertechnique and Marie Jaëll (pupil of Liszt), whose oeuvre he studied extensively.

 

Gudrun Herb (Heilbronn) studied recorder, flauto traverso and flute at the conservatories of Karlsruhe, The Hague and Antwerp and also German philology at the University of Amsterdam. She regularly plays flauto traverso and recorder in cantatas, passions and operas (for example with the "Tölzer Knabenchor"in Italy, Collegium Vocale Gent in the "Concertgebouw" in Amsterdam, the "Amsterdams Bach Consort", the "Nederlandse Bachvereniging"). As a recorder and traverso soloist she interpreted various concertos with members of the "Baroque Orchestra of Freiburg" (Vivaldi, Bach, Telemann) and she plays a lot of chambermusic (Ensemble "The Great Charm", tour with the Huelgasensemble to the USA, the ‘Antwerps Blokfluit Consort’, Vaghezze di Musica). She assisted in radio, television and CD recordings (resp. VRT and RTBF, Ensemble Bouzignac, Ensemble The great Charm, a museum CD with original instruments of the Instrumental Museum of Berlin).

 

Kathryn Bennetts and Peter Bowman have performed throughout the UK, in Germany, Norway and the United States. The duo’s commitment to repertoire development has led to "The Quarter Tone Recorder Manual" (Edition Moeck No. 2084), an introduction to quarter- tonality on the recorder through a series of graded studies and compositions in collaboration with Donald Bousted.
Bennetts and Bowman have been performing together since 1986. They have broadcast for TVS, Classic FM, BBC Radio 3 and Lyric FM Dublin and Radio Netherlands. The CD recording of Bousted’s A Journey Among Travellers and their most recent CD, Flights of Fancy, have received wide critical acclaim.
They also recently recorded a radio opera, Kathryn und Peter Durchqueren die Antarktis (Kathryn and Peter Cross the Antarctic) by Michael Wolters and Marcus Dross which was broadcast during May by Deutschland Radio, Berlin.

Hans Maria Kneihs studied violoncello (under Frieda Litschauer), recorder (under Elisabeth Schaeftlein) and piano (under Gershon Jarecki) at the Academy for Music and Performing Arts; a musicology degree at the university remains incomplete.
From 1964 to 1969 Hans Maria Kneihs was a cellist with the Vienna Radio Symphony Orchestra, which he left to be able to devote himself fully to playing and teaching the recorder. Indeed, he was an active cellist for almost another 20 years (regularly as Substitute at the Vienna Philharmonic). During his membership of the Radio Orchestra he also founded and headed the Austrian Radio College of Music: an ensemble that performed Old Music on original instruments. As recorder soloist Hans Maria Kneihs has given performances in concert, on radio and on television in most European countries and as well as in Japan, Australia and the USA . With the Vienna Recorder Ensemble, which he founded and led from 1972 until it disbanded in 1985, he played countless concerts all over the world. The recordings of Hans Maria Kneihs include works, from among others, with the Camerata Tokyo "The Art of Playing the Recorder" in a set of 10 CDs. Teaching and the consideration of teaching were always for Hans Maria Kneihs as important as his own examination of music. This interest has led to numerous commitments to music-pedagogy reforms (especially of teacher-training) and to political -administrative functions (e.g. Head of Department at the University for Music Pedagogic Vienna (1978-1984) and Head of the Bruckner Conservatory in Linz (1990-1995). He has voiced his opinions on general didactic questions in publications, lectures and seminars. His international activity as recorder teacher includes leading numerous courses, workshops and acting as a juror. Hans Maria Kneihs has taught at the University of Music and Performing Arts since 1964.

She teaches 5 different ensembles beside her recorder lessons, general music and music for the little ones, so she can really say she teaches music in the age of 1 – 90 years! Since a year she is the chairman of the ERTA-Nederland.

Ruffo (awarded by a "Diapason d'or" and "Choc du Monde de la Musique"). Claire Michon is also member of "Castalie" (with P. Dubreuil, harpsichord and H. ter Brugge, cello) and founder of "Les Witches". She teaches at the conservatoire national de région and at the CEFEDEM of Poitiers.
