This is the first book to offer a complete introduction to the recorder. Seven contributors from four different countries write on topics such as the recorder and its music through the centuries, the recorder as orchestral instrument, the professional recorder player through history and today, and the phenomenon of the recorder revival. The Companion also contains basic reference material previously unavailable in one volume. A special feature is found in the rich collection of illustrations which in themselves provide a history of the instrument.

  • First book to provide accessible history, performance information, reference material for the student, teacher and amateur
  • History of the recorder documented in the numerous illustrations, some rare
  • Contributors are major performers and specialists
