Notes and Editorial Reviews

[Hornists Sarah Willis and Klaus Wallendorf] "abide by all requirements and sound qualities, making even the most eccentric, ornamental and devilish flourishes and runs authentic and listenable. A Rosetti surprise."

- Classical Day, Germany

"The soloists play superbly. Moesus leads fine support, and the recording is top notch. This, and the other CPO recordings by these two players, are well worth having, and the notes are also very detailed and well written "

- American Record Guide, 12/2009

-----

Following the label's earlier release of selected Rosetti double horn concertos (cpo 999734), cpo is now presenting another double horn
Read more concerto and two solo horn concertos by this composer. The soloists Klaus Wallendorf and Sarah Willis once again demonstrate their capabilities in virtuoso passages of exceptional length, supreme technical demands, and velocity. Motivic and dynamic contrasts as well as expressive solo parts for the cantilenas are a noteworthy delight to the ear and distinguish these concertos, displaying exuberant powers of invention and radiant, emotionally nuanced melodies within the framework of the compositional form of Viennese classicism.

Bonus: This album comes with a new CPO 2012 Catalogue. The brand-new CPO 2012 Catalogue is absolutely up-to-date and now even more attractive with its more than nine hundred titles. The catalog has again been printed format in CD, and you'll get your copy when you order this disc at a unique special price. A top-quality cpo CD featuring Rosetti's delightful horn concertos as performed by the soloists, Klaus Wallendorf, Sarah Willis, and by the Palatinate Chamber Orchestra and conductor John Moesus.
