BACH – PFEIFER
In 1972 Thomas Axworthy began teaching the Recorder Class at Rio Hondo College in Whittier. This class is the Rio Hondo Consort.
Over the years we began working on other instruments of the Renaissance and Late Baroque eras including the SHAWM (early oboe), the DULCIANS (early bassoons), CORNETTO (finger hole trumpet), SACKBUT (early trombone), CRUNHORNS (capped double reeds) and early FLUTES as well as the recorder.
This combination of instruments was called the STADT PFEIFER in the late renaissance. Every town in Germany, Austria and Switzerland had their own STADT PFEIFER.
Playing only the music of Bach, we became the BACH-PFEIFER.
