Notes & Reviews:

Chamber Music for Horn, Violin and Piano finds three prestigious Michigander associate, adjunct and assistant music professors, one being a current prominent member of the Detroit Symphony, tackling a rewarding mix of 20th c. music written expressly for this type of ensemble arrangement by famed English composer Lennox Berkeley (1903-89), prominent American composer Eric Ewazen (b. 1954) and two works by the late 17th-18th c. French composer of importance for the horn, Frédéric-Nicolas Duvernoy (1765-1838) in editions revised by an important French horn figure of the 20th c. Edmond Leloir.

American Record Guide, March/April 2016
Bruce Bonnell is horn professor at Central Michigan University, Hai-Xin Wu assistant concertmaster of the Detroit Symphony, Zhihua Tang director of collaborative piano at Michigan State University. Their program consists of violin-horn-piano trios that are not by Brahms. The two by Frederic Duvernoy (1765- 1838) were composed for a horn with no valves. Bonnell writes about that in the notes, but he plays the pieces on a modern horn. They are pleasant and they would have been quite challenging for an early 19th-Century horn player.

The music is excellent and the playing good.
