The programme would be:
Yves CARLIN: Le forĂŞt mystĂ©rieuse (16 minutes)
Nick FLETCHER: The Sound of Arisaig (5 minutes)
Maria LINNEMANN: Scottish Miniatures (5 minutes)
Andrew SHIELS: Suite in C (11 minutes; a sort of neo-baroque homage to Anton von Logy)
Jean-Marie RAYMOND: Suite des constellations (10 minutes, Brazilian rhythms)
Federico MORENO-TORROBA: Preludio; Serenata Burlesca; Burgalesa; Minuetto del Majo; Nana; MadroĂ±os (17 minutes)
Claude GAGNON: Le forĂŞt enchantĂ©e (24 minutes)
We metaphorically enter by way of a Mysterious (Belgian) Forest, and exit by way of an Enchanted (Quebecois) Forest. In-between, stopovers in Scotland, Dutch-Scotland, Irish-Bohemia, French-Brazil, and Spain.
Everything is tuneful, a decent mix of moderate and uptempo pieces. Also a good mix of major and minor tonalities. Two movements of the Gagnon suite slightly stretch the definition of tonality, the rest are things which a Segovia or a Parkening would perform without any hesitation. And music for which the audience for Segovia or Parkening would applaud.
The Torroba is in there as an "offering of appeasement" to those who may want to hear some familiar music. And it's music I like playing. Even there, 4 of the 6 titles are pretty obscure. Absent the Torroba, I would plug in 16-20 minutes of music by Giorgio Signorile and by Miroslav Loncar.
