Vicki Boeckman & Friends - February 26, 2012, 7:00 pm
Medieval melodies, Baroque sonatas, and tone paintings from the 20th and 21st centuries are all part of the musical fare of Vicki Boeckman & Friends recorder trio. The three musicians―Vicki Boeckman, Gertie Johnsson and Pia Brinch Jensen―have been performing together in Europe since 1999 and made their American debut in 2003. Their repertoire spans over 800 years, calling for recorders of all different sizes and historical types. In their concerts, the trio often interweaves music with poetry and text readings, resulting in a surprising use of their performance space.
