Recorder recital by Erik Bosgraaf. Van Eyck: Der Fluyten Lusthof (selection). Bilyard: Impressions. Stravinsky: Piece III. Panayiotis Kokoras: Jet. Louis Andriessen: Ende.
The theme of this week's Lunchtime Concerts is "New Tunes on Old Fiddles". Recorded in the Clothworkers' Centenary Concert Hall at the University of Leeds, the four concerts focus on so-called "ancient" instruments, both in their familiar repertoire and out of their comfort zone. Each concert includes the world premiere of a new work by a young composer. Today's recital features the Dutch recorder-player Erik Bosgraaf, who plays a selection of pieces from the 17th Century composer Jacob van Eyck's amazing collection "Der Fluyten Lusthof" alongside more contemporary works by Stravinsky and Louis Andriessen. The programme also includes the world premiere of the young Cheshire-born composer Matthew Bilyard's "Impressions" and the first performance of "Jet" by Panayiotis Kokoras, which is for recorder and electronics.
