According to the Internet source given below, Boreas, god of the north wind, gave the recorder quartet its name: Wind, air, and breath bring the recorders to resound. The Boreas Quartett Bremen plays music from the heyday of the consort. An evening with BQB immerses you in the rich full sound of the consort, while music of the 20th and 21st century adds a modern dimension. The musicians play over 40 flutes of different sizes and construction, including a twelve part Renaissance consort.
