Product Description

This new 'Archives' release presents some of the finest Horn Concertos of the baroque period. The four composers featured (Leopold Mozart, Franz Xavier Pokorny, Freidrich Witt and Franz Anton Roessler) were particularly interested in the development of music for the gloriously rich sound of the French Horn, and in these particular works attempted to stretch the technique of the soloists in order to reach new levels of performance. Father of Wolfgang Amadeus, Leopold Mozart was himself a significant compositional figure during the 18th century, and produced many imaginative works including the concerto for two horns, strings and continuo played on this disc.

Hermann Baumann is considered by many to be the greatest living exponent of the art of French Horn playing. He has over a long and memorable career released many fine recordings including several for the prestigious Philips label in collaboration the likes of Kurt Masur and the Leipzig Gewandhaus Orchestra, the Academy of St. Martin in the Fields, and Pinchas Zuckerman and the St. Paul Chamber Orchestra. He has been very important in the promotion of period instrument performance and played a major part in the development of the techniques required for the playing of early horns. He is on this recording joined by Jaap Schroder and the Concerto Amsterdam, themselves highly acclaimed pioneers in this field.

Personnel:
Hermann Baumann - (French horn), Concerto Amsterdam, Jaap Schröder - (conductor)

to one of the greatest geniuses to walk the face of the earth. No emotion goes untouched with Wolfgang but Leopold ain't no slouch. Listen to this CD and you'll see.
