The beauty of the recorder with Imogen Morris

From Afternoons, 2:20 pm on 15 February 2022

Today's music feature is about the much-maligned recorder!

Imogen Morris is the artist-teacher for recorder at the University of Auckland, where she is also currently completing a PhD in musicology.

She joins Jesse to set the record straight about the instrument, its origins, and give some examples of how beautiful it  can sound when it's not the hands of primary school-aged children!
