BRLO (pronounced Brillo) is a group of highly talented recorder players directed by David Moses, who owns a seven foot tall recorder and writes music. Few instruments sound good in the hands of beginners, recorder is no exception, yet in the 17th and 18th centuries recorders were considered to be instruments of great refinement. In the hands of our 12 expert players, these wonderfully expressive instruments produce a staggering range of sounds and moods.
BRLO present programmes of music in a huge variety of styles using all eight members of the recorder family, from the tiny garklein to the mighty sub contra bass (the ubiquitous school descant is the 3rd largest). David Moses is allowed to wave his arms about, play the double bass, the fool and some of the other 100+ instruments he has cluttering up his house.
