Bullard: Hat Box for Recorder and Piano

by Forsyth
1 review

Hat Box is a celebration of the town of Stockport, home to recorder virtuoso John Turner, to whom (with guitarist Neil Smith) this piece is dedicated. Stockport was formerly the centre of the hat-manufacturing industry, and gave its name to the hymn-tune Stockport written by 18th century Stockport organist John Wainwright for the carol Christians awake, salute the happy morn. The eight hats depicted in this suite refer to phrases from Wainwrights famous tune.

I haven't yet played any of the pieces, as I had purchased them ready for when I am able to play at the level of technicality and virtuosity for which they are composed. But studying these highly rhythmic pieces, they look as though they will be fun and challenging to play. In the meantime I keep practicing!
