Edward Gregson’s Sarabande and Tarantella for recorder and orchestra, with a pastoral influenced section, the soloist sailing effortlessly above the accompaniment. The Tarantella is a virtuosic romp for the soloist, played with style and bravura by John Turner.

These two pieces work well as a short ‘suite’. The beautiful Sarabande, full of melancholy and introspection, is balanced by a vibrant Tarantella. This Italian dance was inspired by English artist JMW Turner. Any relation I wonder to the soloist?
