Notes and Editorial Reviews

If we consider Haydn in connection with the French horn we probably first think of his famous symphony, nicknamed the Hornsignal. But though the four horns of that piece testify to Haydn’s wonderfully fertile imagination in writing music for this most difficult of brass instruments, it is by no means the only example. In this new release the Dutch ‘natural’ horn player Ab Koster and three fellow horn players, two oboists and L’Archibudelli string ensemble explore five less familiar works. In one of them at least – the Divertimento à tre – Haydn demands nothing less than technical magicianship from his horn player. Koster rises to the occasion, negotiating with seeming nonchalance passages of sustained lyricism, sudden bursts of Read more arpeggios, acrobatic leaps and busy passagework that often heads towards the stratosphere. A virtuoso performance.

 Marvelous CD - glad to have it back! April 30, 2013 By Robert Leming See All My Reviews "We lost track of our previous copy and had not copied it to iTunes. A great service to have it back! One small glitch - it seems to be missing and "End of Last Track" code and continues to run until we manually make the switch. All tracks perfect except for that. Thanks Arkiv!" Report Abuse
