Kemp: Fantasia for Four Treble Recorders

by Forsyth
An extended and elaborate work inspired by Purcell’s viol fantasies. It was started at the instigation of Walter Bergmann, and finished over forty years later when the composer (well-known for his biography of Tippett) had retired from a distinguished academic career. This is one of the most significant and deeply-felt works in the recorder’s 20th century repertoire, and will amply reward the time taken in making its acquaintance.
