English Recorder Concertos


This recording showcases the music of three generations of English composers Gordon Jacob, the eldest, composed numerous works for the recorder from the 1950s, Sir Malcolm Arnold was to follow Jacob’s example, contributing his Concerto for Recorder, originally written for and premiered by Michala Petri.

The result is pure musical enchantment. Jacob's delightful Suite has been a mainstay for recorder players since its premiere, while Arnold's rarely-performed concerto is a late masterwork. The programme is capped off by Harvey's rich and demanding Recorder Concerto (Concerto Incantato), composed especially for Michala Petri. Melodic, energetic, magical and surprising, it is a true concert piece for the Harry Potter generation.
