Notes & Reviews:

The latest release in Channel's "First Chairs of the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra" series features Jasper de Waal, who has held the position of first horn with the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra since 2004. This fascinating series allows musicians to present their personal calling cards, as it were, with their very own choice of music from their particular instrument's repertoire. This disc features works for horn in various combinations written by the brothers Franz Josef and Michael Haydn.

Hybrid-SACD pressing.

"Jasper de Waal, principal horn with the Concertgebouw Orchestra since 2004, has a full yet concentrated tone quality with hints of vibrato. His technical skills are superb, he plays with ease in the highest and lowest registers, and his expressiveness seems very natural. He and the Concertgebouw Chamber Orchestra open this program of classic works with Joseph Haydn's Concerto I (1763), and their energy and beauty of sound - along with excellent recorded sound - make this one of the best recorded accounts available." - American Record Guide

Jasper de Waal has occupied the position of first horn with the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra since 2004.

He won several regional music competitions for young musicians in1983 and 1984. Jasper can be heard as a soloist on dozens of recordings of the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra. His other recordings include the horn trios of Johannes Brahms and Jochem Slothouwer and Gregson's horn concerto.

The Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra is made up of orchestral players of the highest international standing. Many of them can be heard not only in the orchestra but also regularly in chamber music performances. After all, the fabulous wealth of that repertoire is a rewarding challenge for any musician.

In the CD series 'First Chairs of the RoyalConcertgebouw Orchestra', musicians submit their personal calling card, as it were, with their very own choice of music from their particular instrument's repertoire. This is one of the ways that the orchestra can proudly introduce its musicians as individuals.

This ebullient collection features Concertos and chamber works for Horn by both Michael and Joseph Haydn.

"Technically faultless, with a gleaming, heroic tone, the Concertgebouw's principal horn player Jasper de Waal barely breaks a sweat in this decorous selection of aristocratic background music from the two Haydns." -The Independent
