Concertino for Treble Recorder, Strings and Harp

Written in 1990, the Concertino for Treble Recorder, strings and harp, was requested by recorder player Ruth Whatley. Ruth and I were at the London College of Music together during this time. We worked together to rehearse the piece and eventually it was given a run-through by a group of string players and harpist, Alice Trentham (also at the college with us at the time). It still awaits its premiere! One day I hope I can post up a recording of this beautiful piece.

A friend who attended its “play through” described it as being like “the South American Rain Forests”, which I thought was a beautiful, and very fitting description.

Duration: Approximately 15 minutes

All of the parts are challenging so this is not a piece for junior players.
