"It is always a joyful shock to see someone suddenly step onto the podium and play music as if a big gate is being opened that finally gives a view into the wide realm of music. We are talking about Maurice Steger, the recorder player, who makes sounds out of his instrument that one would not think possible. Thanks to him, the recorder is well on the way to achieving cult status. It is difficult to put a concert experience with him into words. Critics describe him as a "warlock", "Paganini the recorder" or "Indiana Jones the flute" and warn of goosebumps and the danger of addiction. This time he is accompanied by the phenomenal Basel Baroque ensemble "La Cetra", one of the leading international orchestras for early music, when he invites the audience into the realm of music.
