Gabor Vosteen


Recorder - Like The World’s Never Heard Before

Who would have ever thought the words ‘musical genius’ and ‘recorder’ could be uttered in one sentence? Fluteman manages to combine the absurdity of playing one of the most simple of musical instruments - the recorder - with jaw-dropping skill, turning it into a hilarious one-man show with all of the classical hits, and more. Be prepared to watch a master at work, and at the same time, laugh your socks off.

The flautist melds musical virtuosity, the comedy of mime, bizarre outfits and a startling mastery of wordless vivacity into a sensational performance.

Gabor Vosteen - The Fluteman

Gabor Vosteen is a classical trained recorder player and comedian. His speciality is the playing of five recorders at the same. That's why he is often simply called "the fluteman". His unique combination of music with visual comedy resulted in collaborations in different fields. His latest creation is his solo „The Fluteman Show“.
He was awarded with several prizes such as the audience prize Tuttlinger Krähe 2014, 1. Prize at Kleinkunst- und Gauklerpreis Koblenz 2014, audience prize and 2. jury prize Niederstätter SurPrize in Bozen. 
Gabor performed in shows as Night of the Proms, for Circus Roncalli and in Variety Shows. And as well at venues such as Elbphilharmonie Hamburg, Konzerthaus Wien, Konzerthaus Dortmund, KKL Luzern, Gewandhaus zu Leipzig and  TV Shows  as „Le plus grand Cabaret du Monde“.
