Mau­rice Ste­ger: Recorder Revo­lu­tion­ary For many peo­ple, the mere men­tion of the recorder con­jures up painful school­day mem­o­ries. Swiss recorder player Mau­rice Ste­ger aims to chal­lenge our pre­con­cep­tions of this in­stru­ment, and in this con­cert with the Aus­tralian Bran­den­burg Or­ches­tra his spec­tac­u­lar per­for­mances did just that. Ste­ger of­fered an al­most su­per­hu­man dis­play of vir­tu­os­ity al­lied with an en­gag­ing phys­i­cal pres­ence. City Recital Hall, An­gel Place, Syd­ney. Ends to­day, 2pm and 7pm. Tick­ets: $32-$173. Book­ings: (02) 9328 7581 or on­line.
