Notes and Editorial Reviews

Until well into the eighteenth century the horn was, with few exceptions, associated with hunting music. Only gradually did it find its way into orchestras and was played as a solo and orchestral instrument. On this new release, the young hornist Alessandro Denabian takes us on a journey into the early years of horn music, which is not limited to hunting motifs, and plays works by Luigi Cherubini, Anton Reicha and Louis Dauprat. Alessandro Denabian's style, technique and repertoire pushes him far beyond the norm on both the natural and modern horn. His formidable range of repertoire starts in the 18th century, performing on historical instruments and moves seamlessly through the romantic period, to the most challenging contemporary music. Read more He is a versatile performer, comfortable in many different situations including recitals, solo concertos, chamber music and orchestral repertoire and he has toured extensively in Europe, USA, Mexico, Russia, Israel, Japan, South Korea and China.
