Walter van Hauwe
Historical Performance

Walter van Hauwe (The Netherlands, 1948), one of the most ground-breaking and influential recorder players and pedagogues of the past 50 years, is an authority on both traditional and unconventional recorder literature. A student of Frans Brüggen until 1969, he was a founding member of Quadro Hotteterre and the controversial, experimental recorder ensemble Sour Cream. He played the recorder and baroque flute in many performances and recordings with Nikolaus Harnoncourt, Gustav Leonhardt and Frans Brüggen.

His method “The Modern Recorder Player”, published by Schott, is a principal reference on recorder technique and interpretation. Since 1971 he taught at the Conservatory of Amsterdam where he developed a cutting-edge system of recorder education that attracted ambitious students from around the world. His online Catalogue of Contemporary Blockflute Music contains more than 6000 titles.

In 2002 van Hauwe received the prestigious Prins Bernhard Cultuurfonds Music Prize for his contribution to Dutch culture.
