Notes & Reviews:

Antony Hopkins is a composer, pianist, conductor, broadcaster, author, lecturer and piano-recitalist - he sometimes calls himself a 'sort of musical odd-job man,' since throughout his professional career he has claimed to be able to produce what has been asked for - often at short notice. His broadcasts, Talking about Music, were spread intermittently over 36 years and were heard worldwide through the BBC Transcription Service. These CDs show some of the wide variety of his music, ranging from mere morsels for recorder to more extensive sonatas and songs. They were entirely conceived and organized by John Turner, the noted recorder-player: it was only fair that his virtuosity should be largely featured. Also included are eight short pieces by other composers, written as tributes to Antony on his 90th birthday in March 2011 - mostly as a response to his influential broadcasts when they were young. Some of the pieces exploit the fact that B natural becomes H in German notation enabling the interval A-H to be used on numerous occasions. The theme from Warlock's Capriol Suite, ("Pieds en l'Air") was included as one of the tunes he declared he most loved.
