Up to now, the Dutch composer and performer Karel van Steenhoven, founder member of the renowned Amsterdam Loeki Stardust Quartet, has mainly written demanding concert literature for the recorder. Now he has added an easy work for beginners to the recorder repertoire: 'A Musical Journey' was composed for two young recorder pupils and leads through different stylistic eras of European music history. Van Steenhoven was inspired by an old tune from Ancient Greek which moves from classical antiquity via the Middle Ages and Baroque era to jazz, swing and modern music in 14 short character pieces. In a playful and humorous way, children are thus introduced to the different styles of music. An excursion of educational value without missing out on fun and pleasure.
