Baroque. Horn
Steven Gross - horn

Dale Clevenger, conductor
Capella Istropolitana of Bratislava


American premiere recording of several Baroque horn Concerti. Two are found in the recently discovered Lundt manuscript in Sweden. Remaining works are of similar interest. The Neruda Concerto, usually performed by trumpet, is played by the instrument originally specified, the horn. Bach's Brandenburg Concerto no. 2 is rendered with horn instead of trumpet. This interpretation is of important historical interest, since the trumpet of choice during Bach's time, the
American Record Guide says of his playing: ...an excellent tone and the ability and temperatment to play heroically.

Discovery

Caio Pagano - piano
also James Graber, horn; Katie McLin, violin; James DeMars, voice.

World premiere recordings of six new pieces by five different composers that were written for hornist Thomas Bacon and pianist Caio Pagano. The title comes from the major work on the disc: Trio "a carta de Pero Vaz de Caminha" for horn violin and piano. Inspired by the writing of Pero Vaz de Caminha, the secretary and keeper of the journal chronicling the events of the first Portuguese expedition to Brazil in the year 1500, the Trio describes the explorers' first sighting of the land and its people. The Trio was written by Almeida Prado in the year 2000 upon the occasion of the 500th anniversary of the Portuguese discovery of Brazil.

It features the premiere recording of the late Gunther Schuller's final work for horn, "Quintet for Horn and Strings (2009)".

Mozart: Stolen Beauties

Ironwood with Anneke Scott

Acclaimed Australian period-instrument ensemble Ironwood and internationally renowned horn player Anneke Scott present a disc celebrating the music of Mozart, and exploring the composers who were seduced by its beauty, inspired by its innovation - and who crafted their own music around its most sublime moments.

Mozart's Horn Quintet is one of the jewels in the crown of the composer's chamber music. Mozart, a viola player himself, chose to balance the natural horn with two violas rather than the usual string quartet format, creating a melodious and sonorous sound which is brought to life in this recording through the use of instruments from Mozart's time.

Mozart's music was a source of great inspiration to many composers. The album opens with an anonymous work which takes its theme from the aria 'Là ci darem la mano' from Mozart's opera Don Giovanni. Michael Haydn's Romance bears close relation to the slow movement of the Mozart E-flat major horn concerto; and the album also features an arrangement of Mozart's 'Kegelstatt' Trio by the London-based Barham Livius. Works for horn by the Bohemian-born horn virtuoso Giovanni Punto, who played with Beethoven, complete the disc.

Ironwood is an Australian-based ensemble, committed to exploring music of the Baroque, Classical and Romantic periods on early string and keyboard instruments. The members are some of Australia's most respected early and contemporary chamber musicians. Anneke Scott is acknowledged as one of the world's leading horn players. She is Principal Horn of John Eliot Gardiner's English Baroque Soloists, the Orchestra of The Sixteen, Fabio Biondi's Europa Galante, Dunedin Consort and Players and The King's Consort, as well as appearing regularly as a guest principal with orchestras and ensembles worldwide.
