"The Dortmund Recorder Consort (DORC) was formed in 1994 as a result of a course on recorder ensemble playing held by Dietrich Schnabel during the First Dortmund Sacred Music Week. Now, the DORC is the largest recorder orchestra, that rehearses and performs regularly in Germany.
The DORC consists of some 50 enthusiastic and experienced recorder players of all ages, from 12 to 75 years, playing instruments ranging in size from the 6-inches Garklein to the 6-foot Contrabass in F (called "Subbass" in Germany). The instrumentation of the DORC consists of up to about 20 great basses in C, 15 contrabasses in F and two contrabasses in C, which gives a rich and beautiful sound.
