Notes and Editorial Reviews

Willowhayne Records presents the debut recording by BBC Young Musician 2016 Grand Finalist Ben Goldscheider. The idea behind this release was to present a concert programme taking the listener on a musical journey through the development of the horn and the subsequent music written for it. Starting in the 21st century and then jumping to the classical period, through romantic, early and late twentieth century and back to the 21st century, this release shows the full range of the horn’s versatility, as well as the technical and musical maturity of this exceptional artist. Since reaching the Final of the BBC Young Musician Competition in 2016, Ben has made his concerto debut at venues including the Berlin Philharmonie, KKL Lucerne, Barbican Read more and the Royal Albert Hall, appearing as soloist with the BBC Symphony, Lucerne Symphony and Aurora Orchestras, among others. A committed chamber musician, highlights include appearances at London’s Wigmore Hall with Julian Pregardien and Christoph Schnackertz, and Berlin’s Pierre Boulez Saal alongside Daniel Barenboim and Michael Barenboim. Ben gives recitals throughout the UK, collaborating with many sought-after musicians. Read less
