Notes & Reviews:

During Czerny's lifetime both the horn and fortepiano were in transition. Czerny continued to compose for the natural horn after the valved horn became prevalent throughout much of Europe. In this brand-new Helios recording both types of horn are employed, accompanied by a fortepiano built in 1839.

'A tour de force for horn and piano ... presents natural hornist Andrew Clark and fortepianist Geoffrey Govier as virtuosi of the first rank ... A very enjoyable disk, full of joie de vivre and technical pyrotechnics as well as some beautiful Schubert melodies' (Historic Brass Society Newsletter, USA)

'I put the disc on and was immediately intrigued and delighted' (Early Music Review)

'Horn players will no doubt find much to interest and entertain them here' (International Record Review)

'Played with real style and verve by Andrew Clark and Geoffrey Govier' (BBC CD Review)
