Recorder Artists

Last updated: 10.03.18

This webpage was started in January, 2000 and listed all the artists known to me when I started serious study of the recorder in the late 1970's. It intends to list all internationally known recorder performers, soloists and recorder consorts, with a complete discography of these artists. Lesser-known past and current artists, regardless of their standing, are included with the proviso that they have made at least one recording or radio/TV broadcast. Correspondence is welcomed!
Presently, as of 10.03.18 there are 284 recorder artists are listed as well as 837 CDs and 127 links to websites associated with them. More recorder artists are turning up.
