 Not Easy to Find Original Players November 1, 2012 By Douglas Blackstone (Baltimore, MD) See All My Reviews "That was more/less what Roger Norrington said when asked whether it was difficult to put together performances of original instruments. This disc will show you why. The players are some of today's finest at their craft and only by their sheer talent do they manage the difficulty of playing on 19th century horns, clarinets and bassoons. One can only imagine what it sounded like in the hands and embouchures of the street musicians and cheese mongers who played this stuff back then. Having said that, the chief attractions for me were the arrangements of the two Mozart works. The Serenade and Horn Quintet are well known in their original guise, but these editions are fun to hear. The Pleyel is, like Salieri, no match for Mozart and the athletics on the hand horns are plain ridiculous. Stewart Rose and Bill Purvis are two of the best horn players I know, so they're getting the notes, but, as John Amis, famously said about natural horns: You can understand why they went out of style."
