We have had this information through about the Birmingham International Recorder and Early Music Festival, at Royal Birmingham Conservatoire this coming February from Martin Perkins, Head of Early Music & Instrument Curator, Royal Birmingham Conservatoire.
There’s a huge range of events spread over 4 days: concerts, recitals, masterclasses, films, workshops, exhibitions and talks, and a Young Recorder Soloists’ Competition. We have international soloists visiting, well-known groups from the world of early music, and some innovative projects presenting old music in new ways.
There will also be an Early Music Market between 16th and 18th Feb, with many instrument makers, organisations and shops present in the building.
