Notes and Editorial Reviews

Giovanni Punto (1746-1803, born Jan Václav Stich) was one of the greatest horn virtuosos of the period around 1800. He led a life of adventure, fleeing from serfdom and forced to hide from the bailiffs, concealing his identity through the Italianisation of his name. The horn became the focal point of his professional career as soloist, director of music, arranger and teacher. Among his pupils was Johannes Amon (1763-1825) who also expressed his love of the French horn in his own compositions and in turn passed on his inspiration to Johann Michael Mettenleiter (1791- 1859), thereby helping to add a number of treasured works to the horn repertoire.
