ALL PURCHASES COME WITH SCORE AND PARTS
Instrumentation: Treble Recorder Solo, Harp, Violin1, Violin 2, Viola, Cello and Double Bass
There is quite a lot of divisi in all of the string parts, so at least 6 players per part is preferable, except double basses where 2 players minimum are needed.
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.
