5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful horn playing 28 July 2012
By Philip Chadwick VINE VOICE
Verified Purchase
I am not a fan of wind instruments in general but this won me around - the best horn player ever? probably
The remastering is extremely well done - I don't detect any "boxiness", if anything the sound is warm enough to almost be vinyl.
Also dig for Britten's Serenade for Tenor, Horn and Strings

5.0 out of 5 stars A sweet-sounding remastering of these classics 2 Sep 2006
By Santa Fe Listener - Published on Amazon.com
Dennis Brain's universaly acclaimed Mozart horn concertos haven't been out of hte catalog for fifty years, but for the longest while the 1953 sonics were boxy and cramped. So it's good news that in this remastering Paul Baily has amde the orchestra and soloist sound sweet, even if the boxiness still remains. Brain's playing is uniquely supple and lyrical; future horn players like Barry Tuckwell brought more fire into their playing.

The Quintet for Piano and Winds K. 452 is also a fine performance. It dates from 1954. the only caveat is ot to mistake this reading, with Colin Horsley as the (very good) pianist, for another EMI recording, also with Dennis Brain on horn but with Walter gieseking as pianist. He was, of course, much more famous than Horsley, but the present recording is livelier in the first movement, where gieseking preferred the more usual slower tempo.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dennis Brain...too long gone, but left us this blessing to remember him by! 12 Jan 2009
By Vicki Behrens - Published on Amazon.com
As a horn player in high school, we were often asked to play from the Mozart Horn Concertos for State solo and Ensemble contest. Oh, the beautiful tones, clear crisp sounds heard from Dennis Brain are the best I've ever heard! It is unfortunate that this man's talents were removed from the world far too early; this recording, though done long before current stereophonic sound, is awesome and certainly should be first and foremost in all collections of those who feel they want the best of the best in a french horn player. RIP, my friend!

there are many very fine mozart hornconcertos recordings, but this is the finest available. recording was made in 1953. dennis brain his artristy is impecable, beautiful hornplaying that suits this music extremely well. the philharmonia orchestra conducted by herbert von karajan delivers on the same height. the mozart hornquintet is of the same level. buy this disc!

5.0 out of 5 stars Test of Time 10 July 2012
By Constantine Evans - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
Denis Brain's performance of Mozart's Horn Concertos and Quintet needs no endorsement from me: the fact that it has never been out of print for over 50 years is testimony enough of its greatness. What is wonderful is that the CD enables another generation to enjoy, appreciate and marvel at Brain and Mozart. Technological advances change the form of reproducing Brain's performance but the performance remains. I leave it to others far more learned in music theory to explain and analyze Brain's technique.

5.0 out of 5 stars Legendary pedrformances by Dennis Brain 5 Jan 2013
By Arnold L. Weisenberg - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
Dennis Brain was probably the greatest virtuoso horn player of his time. These Mozart concerti show off his wonderful tone and his mastery of the material. This is worth having no matter what other performance you have.
