Notes and Editorial Reviews

Stefan Blonk performs here on natural horn, alongside Franc Polman on violin and Riko Fukuda on the forte piano. Stefan has always been a very active musician both as a soloist and chamber musician. He often played with the Valerius Ensemble and occasionally for the local orchestra. He now focuses on the natural horn. These three musicians together perform outstanding versions of Beethoven's ''Sonata Op. 17 for horn and piano'', Brahms's ''Trio Op. 40 for horn, violin and piano'' and Rossini's ''Prelude, theme and variations for horn and piano.''
