Nostalgia "Sonata Pro Tabula": In 1998 Flanders Recorder Quartet was awarded the title 'cultural ambassador of Flanders. In the same year we were Artist in Residence at the Antwerp Laus Polphonia Festival. 1998 also saw the release of no less than three CDs: Armonia di Flauti”, “Mit Flöten Chor” and “Sonata pro Tabula”. The latter was a cooperation with Reinhard Goebel's Musica Antique Köln and has been out of print for fifteen years. We have managed to find ten (only ten) new CDs of this 1998 Deutsche Grammophon edition. They are for sale in our webshop!
