Recorder player Maurice Steger ranks as one of the great virtuosi on his instrument among figures on the contemporary scene. His range of activities has been unusually wide, encompassing both unusual repertoire and projects such as children's music. He has also been active as a conductor.
His solo discography is large and has mostly involved the Claves label (1994-2003), and after that Harmonia Mundi. In 2019, he released Mr Handel's Dinner: Music for the Opera Intermissions on Harmonia Mundi. Many of his projects aimed to reproduce a specific musical venue or juncture rather than simply covering repertory for its own sake.
Steger has also created a project centered on a figure called Tino Flautino, a set of recorder-oriented fairytales for children, that has been marketed with books and accompanying materials allowing children to play along with what they hear.
