Notes & Reviews:

This recording is a collection of beautiful and inspired music that shows the horn at its very best, as an instrument that is heroic, lyrical and sonorous. The music represents several of the different musical trends that were present in the compositions written after World War II and leading to the beginning of the 21st century. The music of Karl Pilss, which invokes the sound and style of Richard Strauss, is indicative of the conservative neo-Romantic tradition of post-war Europe. Vignery's Sonata is representative of the more progressive Belgian national school of composers active in Flanders at the time.
