The virtuoso violin YouTubers, versus a 20-year-old recorder star. Who’s been practising more?

Their relatable practice room content, flowing Hilary Hahn veneration, and entertaining Q&As have helped them amass over two million subscribers on YouTube. We’re big fans, and think they have helped write a very exciting chapter in classical music.

In the last few months, Brett and Eddy have also added some brutal classical music roasts and instrument battles to their playlists.

Not terribly happy with this less-than-perfect portrayal of the capabilities of her instrument, she made her own video in response.

In it, she masterfully delivers the desired range, tremolo, vibrato, tone and more to send the wannabe recorder roasters packing and back to their practice rooms. Here it is, in its full glory:
