Biography

The Flautadors are known for their diverse repertoire spanning over 800 years. British performances have taken place at York Early Music Festival, Greenwich International EM Festival as well as the Purcell Room and Wigmore Hall. International appearances have taken them across Europe to the East Cork EM Festival, Ireland and Niasvizh Festival, Belarus. The Flautadors have also played in the theatre featuring in the English National Opera's critically acclaimed production of Medea by Charpentier with the recorders described as "ravishing" by the Financial Times.

All of their recordings have been featured on the UK's Classic FM, Ireland's Lyric FM and Australia's ABC network and their music was included in Words and Music and Britten in the '50s on BBC Radio 3. Their concerts have been broadcast on national radio, and they have appeared as guest artists on the programme In Tune. The Flautadors have enjoyed working with a range of artists including actor Christopher Simpson, lutenist David Miller, cellist Alison McGillivray, the Dante String Quartet and the singers Patricia Rozario, Emma Kirkby and Vashti Bunyan. The Flautadors continue to expand the repertoire by arranging and commissioning new works that challenge the players and extend the technical boundaries of the instrument.
