Performers Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Though relatively little known in the U.S., Dutch-born composer, conductor and Professor Jan Koetsier is well-regarded throughout Europe, and especially in Munich where he served as professor conducting at the Hochschule für Musik in Detmold. As a composer, he devoted much of his efforts to brass and wind instruments.

American Record Guide, March/April 2014
Boldin sounds best when playing with power, and that's what the last two works on this album demand. The 11-minute Choral Fantasy for horn and organ (1981), based on a Jakob Hintze hymn, begins with an unusual Adagio where the horn sustains the first note of each phrase before the organ plays that phrase. The ensuing Allegro calls for horn fortissimos, and Boldin delivers them well. He also has strident passages in the 17-minute Sonata for horn and harp (1983). In a very agreeable I, much of the melodic material is played by horn, the chordal accompaniment by harp. James Boldin is a good young horn player. Fine playing, too, by pianist Richard Seiler, harpist Jaymee Haefner, and organist Matthew McMahon.
