  • Composed by Debussy in 1913 as incidental music for Psyché, a dramatic poem by French symbolist poet and playwright Gabriel Mourey, the work for solo flute known today as Syrinx, has since become a standard of the solo flute repertoire. By performing this great work on baroque flute, new insights both harmonic and tonal are revealed.

Richard Rodney Bennett     A Week of Birthdays for solo harpsichord
These seven short pieces reflect the traditional rhyme: –

  • Monday’s child is fair of face,
  • Tuesday’s child is full of grace.
  • Wednesday’s child is full of woe,
  • Thursday’s child has far to go.
  • Friday’s child is loving and giving,
  • Saturday’s child works hard for a living.
  • And the child born on the Sabbath day is bonny and blithe, and good and gay
