Flute player (FROM boneflute to Baroque traverso), composer, improviser

The fascinating similarities and differences between medieval and modern sounds are the main focus of Norbert Rodenkirchen, Cologne based flautist of the early music ensembles Sequentia, Dialogos and Candens Lilium. He is also known for his flute solo programs reimagining the lost art of medieval instrumental improvisation.

 

His most popular programs are the flute solo "Hameln anno 1284 / Medieval Flute Music - On the Trails of the Pied Piper"  and the project of the ensembles Candens Lilium with Les Haulz et les Bas "Carmina Burana Today"  with transcriptions of the original medieval Carmina Burana. To write to Norbert Rodenkirchen´s bureau please simply click on the contact button
