Notes & Reviews:

American Record Guide, September / October 2012
The set of 6 Fantasy Pieces, with the subtitle In Autumn, was published in 1849 as Op. 6. They are lovely pieces that are very well written for the horn and very nicely played here. The undeniable influence is Robert Schumann (but there's nothing wrong with that). The also Schumannesque Fantasy Pieces, published for violin or clarinet and piano as Op. 9, probably sound better on the violin than they would on the clarinet. Oliver Lewis plays them with spirit and imagination, along with a healthy helping of air in the sound and many audible shifts (there for stylistic reasons, I imagine). I am particularly impressed by Roy Howat's piano playing on both sets of Fantasy Pieces.
