CD release:

With a lot of wit and virtuosity, the Basler Recorder Band presents the first recording of the «Flute Organ». The music for recorder quartet was composed by our publishing co-founder Raphael B. Meyer and captures the romance of vaudeville, fairgrounds and barrel organs from days long gone. Walk in…

Flute Douse:

Des Klanges Süssigkeit zeigt schon der Flöten-nahme.

die dient zur Courtoisie bey Sternen voller Nacht.

Sie ists die offt bewegt, manch angenehme Dame

wann ihr ein Ständgen wird bey stiller ruh gebracht

das sie des sanfften Betts, sich offt wohl gar entziehet

und zu dem süssen thon, hin an das Fenster fliehet.

Johann Christoph Weigel (1661 – 1726)


Gift of the Month:

Every month our Basilisk lays an egg that has a particular surprise in store for you. You can download the "Gift of the Month" from our website every month for free. But hurry! The surprise eggs are only available for three months from the date of publication. In this way, the music hatched by the Basilisk always remains fresh. A regular visit is worthwhile!

Courses & Concerts:

Sheet music is only really fun when the music printed in it is made to sound. In the "Courses & Concerts" section you will find a calendar of events with exciting courses as well as information about concerts that are worth hearing and seeing.
