Product Description

The recorder has always been part of Western music for more than seven hundred years, during which time it has enjoyed a particularly special relationship with the composers and musicians of England. The music here showcases three generations of English composers who have all made significant contributions to the repertoire in the process: Gordon Jacob, Sir Malcolm Arnold, and the youngest, recorder-player composer Richard Harvey. The result? Pure musical enchantment! Jacob's delightful Suite has been a mainstay for recorder players (and an audience favourite) since its premiere, while Arnold's rarely performed concerto makes a most welcome return to the catalogue, a late masterwork truly deserving of a wider audience. The program is capped off by Harvey's magical Concerto Incantato, composed especially for Michala Petri, a true concert piece for the "Harry Potter" generation. 'The highlight of the evening came...with the world premiere of Richard Harvey's Concerto Incantato...Harvey's work brings together a broad range of musical influences...oozing walls of warm, string harmony and a distinct story-telling quality - a highly consumable work commandingly performed.' Mark Tjhung, Time Out Hong Kong


Numerous composers have been inspired to write works specifically for Michala Petri and her very simple instrument, creating a wonderful legacy for the recorder. Her latest release, English Recorder Concertos features the world premiere of Richard Harvey's Concerto Incantato. It was commissioned for the City Chamber Orchestra of Hong Kong, with whom Petri performs on this recording. Richard Harvey is a recorder player himself, and he performed on the Harry Potter film scores. He calls this a concerto for the Harry Potter generation and Michala Petri says you can hear the 'Harry Potter' influence in this concerto. 'It's wonderful to play. He wanted to write a piece which was fun to play for the recorder player, and I think he has succeeded very well. It's one of the pieces where you feel you get as much back as you give immediately.' --by Julie Amacher, Minnesota Public Radio
