Remember recorders?

Watch your childhood instrument steal the show in this Vivaldi piece

The recorder is often one of the first instruments played by school children. The same was true for Prague-born Anna Fusek: she began playing as a young girl. But her recorder concerts are a far cry from those elementary school recitals, having been featured as a soloist at Carnegie Hall, Théatre des Champs-Elysées, and the Philharmonie Berlin, among a long list of other important venues.

The young musician has also won multiple awards for recorder, violin, and piano. And she studied philosophy, musicology, and does a bit of acting. How’s that for a resumé?

The video above features Fusek along with Capella Anna,” a Czech-German orchestra. The Vivaldi piece was part of a larger program of Vivaldi and Bach pieces.

Don’t miss the movement beginning at 7:35, where Fusek really shines.
