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 flute solo programs, reimagining the lost art of medieval instrumental improvisation.

His most popular programs are:

"Hameln anno 1284 / Medieval Flute Music - On the Trails Of The Pied Piper" (medieval flute solo + recitation)

"Medieval Echoes / Contemplative Flute Music From Notker To Machaut" (medieval flute solo) and

"Carmina Burana Today"  with own transcriptions of the original medieval Carmina Burana (for 6 musicians, a project of the ensemble Candens Lilium). All these programs can be booked by writing to me directly!
