'a well-intentioned and enterprising disc' Gramophone

Barry Tuckwell provides his own, insightful liner notes for this, his second recording of the Strauss Horn Concertos (the first being with István Kertész). What makes this a particularly sought-after release is the inclusion of the rarities and the fact that Tuckwell has gone back to the original manuscripts. The Final Scene from Capriccio is not a rarity at all, but is included for its luminous horn solo and, in Tuckwell's words, 'as a tribute to the great composer, as a bonus for the listener and as an indulgence for the soloist'.

Horn Concerto No.1 in E flat major, Op.11
