For over seven hundred years the recorder has held a special fascination for English composers and musicians. The featured release below has significant additions to the repertoire of recorder music from three generations of English composers. Gordon Jacob's suite has been a mainstay for recorder players since its premiere, while Malcolm Arnold's rarely performed concerto makes a welcome return to the catalog. The program is capped off by the youngest composer, Richard Harvey, whose magical Concerto Incantato, composed especially for Michala Petri, is a true concert piece for the Harry Potter generation. Also, take 20% off off companion titles by Michala Petri.
