5.0 out of 5 stars True classic, 26 July 2011
This review is from: Mozart: Horn Concertos (Audio CD)
In 2007 "EMI Classics" released a very interesting little booklet with a CD titled "Great recordings of the century" where they presented bits and pieces from their legendary catalogue: it was a clever marketing strategy where through 21 cherry-picked numbers they introduced just some of the names of the past and this is how I noticed Dennis Brain. Obviously,now I went a long way from the first days when my main interest in classical music were singers with expressive voices. Slowly I started to notice players behind the singers and often I would actually find instruments to be more exciting than "stars". Eventually I grew up to really like instruments-only music and Brain recording of Mozart's Horn Concertos was a love at first sight. I loved absolutely everything about this album,including its cover. And to find that Brain himself was such a likable character who died young,well,it has nothing to do with the music really but it made me loving this album even more. Sure,musicians always adored this album but I am not a musician and it is a testament to Mozart and Brain that this music finds its way to hearts of everybody. I am very happy that EMI now has a CD box set with Dennis Brain and seriously considering to bring home that one as well,I simply love this music.
