Willem Jeths Recorder Concerto, co-commissioned by Borletti-Buitoini Trust.
Jeths’ Recorder Concerto tops the genre *****
“Those who thought that a quiet-sounding renaissance recorder would lose out to an outsized modern symphony orchestra had not counted on [Willem Jeths]. Jeths has a great feeling for the concerto… and [his] Recorder Concerto can claim right away to be one of his best compositions in this genre.
“Jeths’ long melodies – and they are proper melodies – were played by Erik Bosgraaf with a tremendous sense of line and phasing.”
Peter van der Lint, Trouw, Amsterdam, 22 December 2014
