Announcing the new publications from Forton Music Publishers. Three new albums comprising 29 pieces, Constellations Set III for Descant Recorder and Piano, Constellations Set IV for Flute and Piano and Cool Cat Clarinet, for Clarinet and Piano. Graded from easy to intermediate standards in each album, these are ideal concert performance repertoire pieces to play at home, in school, academy and college, or just for fun!
I am honoured to have a work included in the new Trinity College Piano Recital Anthology. This large volume (240 pages) is recommended for associate diploma recital performances in solo Piano. The anthology includes works by twenty-one composers ranging from Bach, Beethoven and Brahms through to Wilkinson. I am indeed privileged to be the only living composer published in the volume.
There are new Digital Editions of works by Garry Wilkinson recently published. These are welcome formats and ensure we stay safe while we find new music to play.
