Welcome to the website of The Royal Wind Music: a unique consort of renaissance recorders founded by Paul Leenhouts. They perform on a collection of instruments made by Adriana Breukink and Bob Marvin that ranges from the twelve-inch sopranino to the sub-contrabass measuring over ten feet. The thirteen members of the ensemble, originally from Austria, Germany, Hungary, The Netherlands, Portugal, South Korea, Spain and the United Kingdom, all studied at the Amsterdam Conservatoire.
On June 15, 2012 Frans Brüggen received an Edison Prize for his lifetime recording achievements. The Royal Wind Music performed one of Pierre Phalèse's Bransles to celebrate!
