Concerto No. 2 in C for Descant Recorder
With these new editions, all six recorder concertos of John Baston are now available, each with score, piano score and parts. The thor-oughly edited scores follow essentially the first edition printed by John Walsh in London in 1729. Baston was regarded as an excellent recorder and flute player who worked with London opera orchestras in the early 18th century. His easy concertos anticipating the elegant melody of the early classical period enjoy great popularity representing a rewarding task for music school orchestras and advanced recorder players.
