Notes and Editorial Reviews

The hunting horn is the French folk instrument par excellence. In its way, it is as exotic to foreigners as Scottish bagpipes, the Russian balalaika, or the bandoneon of the Argentine tango. The hunting horn also played a crucial role in Baroque classical music during the reign of Louis XV. Today, too often reduced to being used in the field and in hunting ceremonies, its great emotive power deserves to be appreciated by a wider audience. This disc, featuring the ensemble Les Trompes de Chambord, will appeal both to hunting enthusiasts, who appreciate the game's special pageantry and traditions, and to classical music lovers who are curious about the instrument's connections to Western music history.
