No stranger to Westminster’s imposing IV/84 Harrison & Harrison, Daniel Cook puts the venerable instrument through its paces in a recital brimming over with panache, precision playing and poetry. He takes obvious delight in the virtuosic pedalling of Bach’s BWV 540 Toccata & Fuguein F, is positively rumbustious in Norman Cocker’s Tuba Tune and imbues Vierne’s Westminster Carillon and Grainger’s Handel in the Strand (in Wolfgang Stockmeier’s transcription)with rich and ripe atmospheres. The exulting joy of Elgar’s First Pomp and Circumstance March rounds offa thoroughly enjoyable recital, Cook, Harrison & Harrison proving that three is the perfect number.
