Composed by Jonathan Merrett and written in an approachable modern idiom Three Descant Recorder Pieces is fun to play and easy to listen to. The first movement, Promenade, is a gentle walk in the countryside. The second piece, Song, is a lyrical melody that challenges the player to sustain the long lines of the tune. The finale, Swinging Along, is joyful and jazzy and is a lively counterpart to the other two movements. The piano accompaniment supports the soloist well, and is written in an accessible style for the teacher to accompany their pupil. Ideal for teaching studios, middle and secondary schools.
