Notes and Editorial Reviews

Calling all horn buffs! Here's an attractive cross-section of 20th-century solo horn compositions, played astonishingly well by Michelle Stebleton. Most of the works are stylistically conservative and anything but audacious, yet all exploit the modern valve horn's timbral and registral potential with idiomatic skill.

The opening salvo, Vitaly Buyanovsky's Espana, challenges players to replicate repeated notes and flourishes that lie comfortably for flamenco guitar. Sustained lyrical passages and rapid outbursts characterize Bernhard Krol's Laudatio, a familiar test piece in the modern horn repertoire. If the basic ideas throughout Paul Basler's Marathon sometimes overstay their welcome, the hornist/composer more than redeems
Read more himself with his witty, aphoristic Five Pieces.

I'm especially drawn to David Lyon's Morton Gould-like, multi-movement Partita, and to the surprising melodic twists and turns taken in Malcolm Arnold's jaunty Fantasy. You certainly do not have to be a brass specialist to enjoy this well-engineered recital's strongest works, not to mention Stebleton's dead-of-center intonation, seamless tonal control, and effortless agility. Strongly recommended.
