About the work
Recitative was written in 1992 for a University of York New Music Group Concert. It is a simple melodic piece, floating over a bass line which is constant throughout the whole piece until the closing bars.
First Performance: Colin Johnson, 1993, University of York New Music Concert
The left hand part needs to be played fairly quietly, while the right hand part is more strident. Further notes on registrations are given with the score.
