Bristol’s Foremost Recorder Ensemble

Pink Noise Recorder Quintet play a wide repertoire of music, with a particular focus on modern recorder music. Since 2008 the group has performed regularly in the Bristol area, gaining a reputation for tight ensemble playing and an ability to thrill an audience with great music.

“[…] the audience was spellbound by Pink Noise, as indeed I was. Every time I hear you, I am increasingly impressed by the level of musicianship in the group and the amazing rapport between […] you.”

Steve Walter, following a concert in the Victoria Rooms, Bristol.

“The three defining features of […] Pink Noise are: their repertoire playing contemporary music written for recorders, chosen carefully for interest, versatility and audience accessibility; their tight ensemble playing and excellent communication as they play; and their highly developed playing skills and ability to project drama and theatricality in the music.”

Heather Jenne, writing in The Recorder Magazine

“Pink Noise […] are quickly establishing themselves as Bristol’s response to those who yearn for proficient amateur recorder players to push the boundaries a little: to explore modern repertoire, test themselves and surprise their audiences.”

Sue Loder, writing in The Recorder Magazine
