01Radio 3 Lunchtime Concert20110301

The theme of this week's Lunchtime Concerts is "New Tunes on Old Fiddles". Recorded in the Clothworkers' Centenary Concert Hall at the University of Leeds, the four concerts focus on so-called "ancient" instruments, both in their familiar repertoire and out of their comfort zone. Each concert includes the world premiere of a new work by a young composer. Today, harpsichordist Mahan Esfahani performs a Fantasia by Orlando Gibbons, a selection of Bach's Preludes & Fugues (Book 1) and a new commission by Marc Yeats entitled "rhêma".

GIBBONS - Fantasia, MB.11

BACH - Preludes & Fugues, Book I (selection)

MARC YEATS - rhêma (world premiere).
