Boreas Quartet Bremen
Last updated: 01.01.18
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.
BQB comprise Jin-Ju Baek, Elisabeth Champollion, Julia Fritz and Luise Manske who studied in the Early Music department of the University of the Arts in Bremen, Germany, under the tutelage of Professor Han Tol from 2004 until 2008. In 2014 the quartet was awarded a scholarship of the German Music Council (Deutscher Musikrat) in the final round of the German Music Competition (Deutscher Musikwettbewerb). In 2012 the quartet won first prize and audience prize of the Early Music competition run by Saarland radio and the Fritz-Neumeyer-Akademie in Saarbrücken, Germany.
