five-part recorder consort

"Element of Prime" is an Austrian five-part recorder consort consisting of Carin van Heerden, Magdalena Rath, Domenika Thanner, Veronika Traxler and Michaela Vaught. The diversity of the recorder family and the resonanceof the instruments when played in a consort represents the crowning glory ("prime") of music-making for the five musicians. They share a fervent love of the “Flaute dolce” and founded the ensemble in 2015 at the Anton Bruckner Private University in Linz. Since then, the ensemble has performed at the Brucknerhaus in Linz, Porgy & Bess Vienna, the Danube Festival in Strudengau and has appeared on Austrian national radio (Ö1). In 2019/2020 Element of Prime toured Austria as part of the Jeunesse education programme. The ensemble toured South Africa in February 2024. In their concert programmes they combine Renaissance music with contemporary works, often with close collaboration with these composers.
