Formed in 2012, BLOCK4 is a London based recorder quartet featuring RCM Alumni Emily Bannister, Lucy Carr, Katie Cowling and Rosie Land. Having studied with Ashley Solomon, Julien Feltrin and Maria Martinez Ayerza, BLOCK4 presents a dynamic approach to contemporary consort music as well as offering a captivating interpretation of music from the Renaissance and Baroque periods.
Alongside its love of contemporary repertoire, BLOCK4 takes an inquisitive approach to Renaissance music, frequently performing little-known works and creating their own arrangements for recorder quartet. They use the full range of renaissance recorders, from soprano to contra-bass, in order to capture the vast number of timbral and dynamic possibilities in consort playing.
Free admission, no booking required.
