Notes & Reviews:
Australian pressing. Barry Tuckwell brings us a real gem with this recording of the horn music of Richard Strauss. Highlights include the Introduction to the Final Scene of Capriccio, the longest non-concerto solo Strauss wrote for the horn, and a gorgeous example of his late style. The other pieces are mostly early works, but delightful for all that, particularly the song 'Alphorn' with soprano and piano. Decca. 2005.
