Song of the Lesser Twayblade image
Solo Treble Recorder
Strings (Violin 1, Violin 2, Viola, Cello, Bass)

The Lesser Twayblade is a type of orchid, a miniature plant, found in Britain almost exculsively in Scotland, unlike it's much commoner and more robust relative the Twayblade Orchid which can be found plentifully throughout Great Britain. It is very dainty and sweet and discreet in colour. This work for treble recorder, harp and strings is in one movement and owes something to Debussy and Ravel and, like the plant, is dainty and sweet. This is a reduction for recorder and piano. The orchestral parts are also available (Catalogue number GMCO041).
An excellent performance, with the leading recorder soloist John Turner, is available on an ASV CD.
Duration: 6 minutes
