One of the discoveries that we at Divine Art/Metier love: the fact that Anthony Burgess, author of A Clockwork Orange - and many fine novels - was also a busy composer, writing among other works several for recorder. Here we present the first recordings of some of these, and works by 15 other composers in a wide and varied set of styles, most of which are also premiere recordings and a substantial body of work for this increasingly popular instrument. Check out the artist profile for several more fine recorder albums by John Turner.

 “... Sometimes downright funny, [the recorder] can also move us with unexpected pathos. The performance standard here is remarkably high. Judicious balancing on the side of the recording team means the recorder line comes through perfectly at all times. A stimulating release.” 

 
Colin Clarke - Fanfare

"... [Burgess wears] a pretty impressive composer’s hat in addition to his literary one ... as a programme [the set] makes for an intriguing byway ..."

Roger Thomas - International Record Review


“ It is with Burgess’s musical activities that this CD is concerned. His musical achievements are considerable. Each CD contains two compositions by Burgess as well as a wide-ranging selection of pieces by contemporary composers. {lists works with much praise in detail}. This is a major success. From the playing of both the soloists that is perfect, through the liner-notes, the design of the CD and the selection of the programme, I am totally impressed. ”
