On This Island: Music of English Composers

Today we present a programme of music by English composers old and new, featuring various pieces by Benjamin Britten whose centenary falls this year (and one of whose song cycles forms the title of today’s programme).

In addition we are featuring what is probably at least one of the first broadcasts of Christopher Gunning’s latest works, the Concertos for Guitar, Clarinet and Flute, from the album released on the Discovery label. You’ll also hear Richard Harvey’s delightful Concerto Incantando for recorder, played by Michala Petri.
