Arias without words for recorder and harp:

The great melodies of Monteverdi, Handel und Gluck are just as brilliantly enchanting when played by a small ensemble, as demonstrated by recorder virtuoso Stefan Temmingh in his new programme, with Margret Köll on the Baroque harp. More recently, Danish composer Thomas Koppel dreamed up other “sound stories”. His Jewish family escaped the Holocaust by fleeing to Sweden, where he was born in a refugee camp. High time to perform his fusion of rhythm and blues, classical and jazz in Austria too.
