Boreas, god of the north wind, gave the recorder quartet its name: Wind, air, and breath bring the recorders to resound. The Boreas Quartett Bremen plays music from the heyday of the consort. An evening with BQB immerses you in the rich full sound of the consort, while music of the 20th and 21st century adds a contemporary dimension. The musicians play over 40 flutes of different sizes and construction, including a twelve part Renaissance consort.

Jin-Ju Baek, Elisabeth Champollion, Julia Fritz and Luise Manske studied at the Akademie für Alte Musik in Bremen. The quartet has played concerts in Germany, Austria, The Netzerlands, Czech Republic, in Switzerland, Italy, in South Korea and at the International Recorder Festival in Taiwan.
