Aurelio Bonelli Toccata Cleopatra
Hans Leo Hassler, arr Greg Lewin Canzona Duodecimi Toni
Moritz Moszkowski, arr Philip Evry Krakowiak, from Suite of Polish Dances

Gaston Saux, who studied composition at the Paris Conservatoire under d’Indy, is well known amongst recorder players for two recorder quartets; the first composed in 1959 and the second in 1965. He also wrote a number of other works for recorder most of which are unpublished, including “Un beau jour d’été,” composed in 1962. It is dedicated to Edgar Hunt, who has been at the forefront of the revival of the recorder in the UK for over 75 years and who also ran many Anglo-French summer schools in France at Arras. Edgar’s sister, Enid, who founded the Bristol Branch of the SRP and was its musical director for nearly 50 years, deposited a manuscript of the work in the Bristol SRP Library. The hand written score (not by Saux) was almost illegible – although the parts were clearly written. It has been computer set by Dick Little.
