Michala Petri has been one of the world’s leading recorder players for over 40 years. She is an innovator on the instrument and with her inborn curiosity has developed new playing techniques that has offered contemporary composers great opportunities for writing for the recorder. Her long career has included just over 150 original works and more than 50 CD releases. Now Petri returns to her point of departure – Baroque music.

In 2019, she teamed up in the recording studio with the Iranian harpsichordist Mahan Esfahani and the German viola da gamba player Hille Perl and recorded Bach’s flute sonatas, and this has resulted in a fascinating CD. At the concert, they play precisely these sonatas as well as solo pieces by Bach for their respective instruments.
