Ever wondered what great Romantic virtuosi such as Liszt or Paganini would have sounded like if they had played the recorder? Would women have swooned in the aisles at the spectacle of a fully grown man performing feats of bravura showmanship on a humble descant recorder, or melted at the seductive tone and soaring romantic lines of the tenor instrument? Recorder Maestro Piers Adams, together with pianist Howard Beach explore this intriguing possibility in a wealth of music by Chopin, Rachmaninov, Sarasate, Schubert and others, fearlessly arranged and performed on this extraordinary disc.
"An entertaining disc, brilliantly played, which will provide delight and amusement not only to recorder fans"
