Abigail's Jig for flute, bassoon & piano


  • Op.10 No.2c
  • 1980/2009
  • 2 minutes, 45 seconds

A lively piece for flute, bassoon and piano, combining the atmosphere of an Irish jig and cowboy music!


This is a computer generated extract.

This lively trio was arranged in August 2009, and given its first performance in St Lawrence Jewry Church, next Guildhall, London EC2 on 7 August that year, by Rachel Smith (flute), Miriam Butler (bassoon) and the composer (piano).


This is Richard Lambert at his fun best. This is a re-working of a movement from an earlier suite for wind band and I think this is the better version, especially as it features an instrument from the ‘endangered species’ category. I can’t tell you how much fun this piece is, flute and bassoon players of grade 5/6 upward will love it. It’s jaunty and bouncy and makes you want to get up and dance (if you were so inclined!).
