Notes & Reviews:

Despite differing stylistic and geographical backgrounds, Constantin Homilius, Gioachino Rossini, Antonio Richter, Wilhelm Albrecht Lütgen, Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov, and Jacques-François Gallay set their unique sound worlds dealing with the technical possibilities of the French horn of their times, thus challenging and furthering the development of its technical standard. This kind of literature represents a great opportunity for the Leipzig Horn Quartet to once again prove its unique and celebrated musical quality!
