Lucie Horsch & Thomas Dunford

ECHO Rising Stars

Lucie Horsch stands in the centre of the image, looking up and holding a big bundle of recorders in her arms

Hear a musical conversation between Lucie Horsch, the ‘latest big thing in recorder playing’ (Guardian) and lutenist Thomas Dunford, as they showcase the versatility of their instruments.

It’s the instrument we’ve all tried but few have mastered. Lucie Horsch is one of those few, and she and Dunford take you on an often intimate, sometimes exuberant journey around Baroque and contemporary Europe, from their home countries of the Netherlands and France, via Germany, England and Italy. Taking the recorder further than you’ve ever heard it before, Horsch and Dunford play their arrangements of Bach’s Suite in C minor for lute, and Marin Marais’ piece for viol, Couplets de Folies, as well as a new commission by Lotta Wennäkoski.

At just 22 years old Horsch’s talent has already been firmly recognised. She was a 2020 winner of the prestigious Dutch Music Award, and now adds 21-22 ECHO Rising Star to her list of accolades. She finds a perfect recital partner in Thomas Dunford, the ‘Eric Clapton of the lute’ (Badische Zeitung). 

This performance will finish at approximately 7.30pm
