In 1668, Samuel Pepys put into words what millions of others have experienced: the power of music and its mysterious ability to continue playing inside the listener’s mind. Until the 15th century music was predominantly an aural tradition. However, with the invention of the printing press this tradition began to disappear. Still, some melodies are innately memorable.
Tabea is constantly exploring the horizons of music for recorder and has performed widely in Europe, Asia and the USA. Her programme includes music based around sight, hearing and the passage of time, ranging from baroque to contemporary.
“Only very rarely do we get the chance to encounter musicians in full artistic control and bestowed with a technical ability that makes you sit and listen in awe.” Early Music Review
