This fourth volume in the Forsyth series of Recital Pieces for recorder and piano provides 8 superb concert pieces for the intermediate to advanced recorder player, including works by Jim Parker and Peter Hope.
This new collection is bookended by beguiling and moderately easy works by two of Britain’s most distinguished composers of light music, Peter Hope and Jim Parker, whose music has been heard by millions of listeners and viewers. Sandwiched between these are several no less attractive concert pieces, including an evocation of the night sky in East Anglia, a gentle meditative view from a college window, and some finger-testing sparklers to entertain and test the virtuoso player’s technique.
