For the third time in succession, a recorder player has performed in the Woodwind Final of the BBC Young Musician. Polly Bartlett has written to us:
I recently came across your website and spotted that you had wished me good luck and so I just wanted to call and say thank you for your good wishes!
The Woodwind Final is to be broadcast on BBC4 on Friday 15/4/16 and I do hope you might be able to watch.
I won’t spoil the surprise by letting you know the results etc., but I thought you might be interested to see my programme which was…
Frescobaldi Canzona detta la Bernardinia (Descant)
Barsanti Sonata in C (mvs 1 and 2) (Treble)
Ziegenmeyer ‘Na zdrowie’ from The Delayed Flute for recorder, microphone, delay box and amplification
Le Thiere L’Oiseau du Bois (Sopranino)
I had such fun in Cardiff where the programme was recorded and I hope I have done a little bit to continue to fly the flag for the recorder!
All the best to Polly
