Recorder Ensembles

These Recorder Ensembles from Norway started at the Uranienborg and St.Sunniva schools in 1989, with the aim of working with the recorder as a full-fledged and serious solo and ensemble instrument.

Leaders and conductors: Johan Nicolai Mohn and Svein Egil Skotte .

Including beginners and aspirants, there are currently more than 150 players in the two teams from 6 to 26 years old. In addition to the traditional classical repertoire of the recorder, students also receive training in various types of folk music, such as Norwegian, Irish and Latin American.

The ensembles toured England, the Netherlands, Germany, France, Spain, Italy, Scotland, Ireland, Czech Republic, Austria and the USA and took part in the Oslo International Chamber Music Festival. The ensemble was selected to play at the Nobel Prize winner's 2007 concert at Oslo City Hall and for many years participated in the productions of Pollicino by Hans Werner Henze and Cinderella by Peter Maxwell Davies at the Norwegian Opera in Oslo.

The ensembles have been carrying out the "Young Barok" project for years in collaboration with string players from Barratt Due and professional musicians from "Barokkanerne". The ensemble also performed an exciting jazz project with big band music for recorder orchestra in collaboration with professional jazz musicians and in 2015 a similar project with folk music from the Balkans. In the fall of 2018, the ensemble performed again at the Norwegian Opera and took part in the Scandinavian project "Viking Baroque".
