Sonata for Three

Sonata for Three (2002)
recorder (flute), bassoon (cello) and harpischord (piano): 9 minutes

Written and first performed by John Turner, Graham Salvage and Pamela Nash, this work comprsies three movements:
1. Fanfare – a lively dialogue between the instruments, featuring many trumpet-like motifs
2. Lament – a sombre movement exploring the rich quality of the bassoon and recorder
3. Burlesque – a busy movement with many changes of metre, in which the recorder and bassoon often provide a background to the harpsichord
