Swift is a trio who share an interest in exploring and advocating the diverse repertoire that exists for the recorder.
As well as music from the medieval, Renaissance and Baroque periods, Swift are also enthusiastic about contemporary music and have commissioned new works, recently premiering Dichotomy by Maarten Benschop. They are currently learning Morning Whispers, a piece written for the ensemble by composer Fang Fang.
