A celebratory piece for brass ensemble (two trumpets, french horn, trombone and tuba)
This is an arrangement for recorder trio of a minuet and trio taken from one of Haydn's early symphonies. If anybody knows the number I'd be very happy to be reminded of it.
The first of three movements of an Oboe Sonata played live by John Anderson, a friend of a friend. I was delighted to have it played by such a renowned professional player. He was a member of the Orchestre de la Swisse Romande at the the age of twenty. He is a main expositor of the Strauss Oboe concerto, has been principal oboist of the Royal Philharmonic and is principal oboist of the English Chamber Orchestra. He teaches at the Royal School of Music and is in great demand as a freelance performer. My great thanks go to him.
It is followed on this page by movements two and three.
A short piece for flute and piano - evocative of Spring, perhaps.
An organ piece by Buxtehude transcribed for recorder quartet. Sonority is added by the use of the great and contra great recorders to the bass line.
The piece takes 5 minutes and 35 seconds to play.
This is a first attempt at an unfamiliar medium, Hopefully, it will have its first live performance later in the year. Unfortunately the full range of instrumentation is too great to fit into the video slot - but it can all be heard!
Duration: 3mins. 40secs.
First movement of a short sonata for recorder (flute, violin, etc) and piano in the modern style.
