Virtually Unknown Series
I am a Music Archaeologist. For the past 20 years I have been fascinated by the amount of good music that is forgotten. Ranging from symphonies to flute music, I track it down, dig it up and make a new edition with a virtual performance on a play-along CD. My research has taken me all over Europe and I have appeared at the BBC Proms. For several years I have been writing articles about forgotten flute music for Pan, journal of the British Flute Society. Recently I was especially pleased to have uncovered the music of Sir George Alexander Macfarren.

Bright, tuneful and fun to play. G.A. Macfarren is a forgotten English composer who was famous in his day and a major contributor to English music. He was also Principal of the Royal Academy of Music, Professor of Music at Cambridge University and a friend of Mendelssohn, sharing a similar compositional style. The Recitative & Air was first published in 1883. It previously had been performed 'with excellent effect' to an audience of nearly 2,000 people.
