About

Christina Lauridsen recorder player

Coincidences in childhood started Christina's passion for the recorder which has grown so strong in her, that she can not imagine life without it. Her passion today is to convey the recorder’s opportunities by playing concerts, publishing music and teaching. She plays both the "classical repertoire" but is also developing the recorder literature, for example by collaborating with contemporary composers and testing electronic amplification of the recorder.

 

In her concerts she places emphasis on playing music that presents the recorder from many different sides while simultaneously considering the overall impression of the concert. The program may not be monotonous and predictable and the music is to be presented properly.

 

She studied at the Royal Danish Academy of Music, where she met inspiring teachers such as recorder player Bolette Roed, guitarist Jesper Sivebæk, harpsichordist Karen Englund, violinist Peter Spissky, etc.

 

On weekends Christina likes to go to a flea market and collect books on music and the recorder and old LPs. The library in the home grows as her passion is getting stronger and stronger.
