Reviews for the Flanders Recorder Quartet have been positive, with the New York Times praising the band's performance.[2] The Columbia Spectator also positively reviewed the group, citing the flexibility of the recorders as a highlight.[3] The Flanders Recorder Quartet has also received positive reviews from the Milwaukee Express and CultureMap Houston.[4][5]

Of a 1998 performance of The Four Seasons, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette wrote that the band was "brilliant" but that "for maintaining rhythmic vitality" the band "couldn't match good string playing".[6]
