Swedish recorder player Dan Laurin is arguably one of the finest interpreters of Vivaldi around, having brought new life to the canonized Four Seasons concertos, by trading the conventional solo violin parts with the recorder, an instrument Vivaldi also wrote for. Laurin is a formidable musician who is able to convey Vivaldi’s bold ideas with a comparatively simple instrument. Together with select members from 1B1, Laurin succeeds in making Vivaldi sound as if the music was written with rock musicians in mind. Together with Laurin 1B1 will perform Vivaldi, alongside completely new music that is written for him, the orchestra, and a new instrument, the Eagle Recorder – turbo recorder designed to bring it to parity with an orchestra without amplification.

She plays also clavichord, fortepiano and pianoforte.
