Welcome All to my new blog, the 'Early Bird Extra'!
For those of you who stumble across this page randomly, as unlikely as that might be, here's a little background: I'm an Australian recorder player currently living and studying in Salzburg, Austria. I am also attempting to learn cornetto, have some experience with the harpsichord, and for some reason have a politics degree, which at the very least has taught me to write quite well.
This blog is intended to be both interesting and entertaining for all the folks interested in early music out there, as well as an educational experience for me: I will be reviewing books, CDs, DVDs, concerts and other events, and perhaps occasionally ranting about the state of the historical music world. With any luck, I will be doing so reasonably regularly.
If this sounds like your cup of tea, please read on!
And if you have any suggestions for books, CDs, or DVDs you would like me to review, please feel free to ask, either here or on twitter.
