About me

Location Brisbane, Queensland, Australia
Introduction SINCE THEIR establishment in 1985 the Badinerie Players have performed in Brisbane and South-East Queensland to great acclaim. Their guest list is impressive and includes specialist artists from around Australia and overseas. They have undertaken many direct broadcasts and studio recordings for the ABC and all are professional players and teachers of modern string instruments, four of the players are members of the Queensland Symphony Orchestra. Informed musicians and audiences around the world today are favouring authentic performance of music from the more distant past. Our players, together with their Queensland following, have been happy proponents of this approach for some years. 'Authentic' is only a label, but the one which best covers all the areas which make for successful presentation of early music. The use of stringed instruments in original disposition, wind and brass of appropriate materials and systems, properly reproduced harpsichords or fortepiano is essential. To these foundations the Badinerie Players add considered style and imaginative interpretation to produce performances that make historical sense and fine entertainment.
