Welcome

Woodpeckers are a dynamic group of virtuoso recorder players who share a common interest in performing and promoting both very old and very new music for their instrument. Their aim is to present the recorder as an important concert instrument of our times. At the forefront of Woodpeckers’ ideology is the drive to kick the age-old image of the recorder being merely a stepping-stone to something else, and they are intent on spreading their knowledge far and wide, be it through videos, recordings, workshops, teaching, research, and of course, live concerts.

Woodpeckers Recorder Quartet is generously funded by: 
Helge Ax:son Johnsons stiftelse, Kiruna Kommun, Region Norrbotten, Statens Kunstfond, Solistforeningen af 1921, Kulturdirektoratet and Swedish Arts Council (Kulturrådet)
