Abstract

Into the Garden consists of a set of five pieces for period instrument quartet- recorder, violin, viola da gamba and harpsichord. Overt reference is made to Baroque compositional formulae and musical genres and the music is strongly tonal/modal as befits the capabilities of period instruments. It would be incorrect, however, to label this piece a pastiche- harmonically, despite the constant presence of a tonal centre, there are dissonances that no baroque composer would have countenanced. The five pieces are entitled: Prelude, Toccatina, Chorale, Canon and Concertino. The piece was written for the celebrated British flautist Martin Feinstein and also taken up with great success by Bridget Cunningham's group, Emerald.
