[ Double Decca / 2 CD ]
Release Date: Saturday 25 February 2006
Mozart's ever popular concertos lead a collection of Mozart's music for horn. Outstanding performances from Barry Tuckwell as he celebrates his 75th birthday year.
Released at the start of the Mozart 250th Anniversary Year in 2006 this CD set is devoted to Mozart's horn music and as well as including the ever-popular horn concertos and the horn quintet, also includes fascinating fragments for horn and an aria for soprano with horn solo from the opera Idomeneo.
The horn player in all of these recordings is one of the finest players of the modern French horn in the past forty years, Barry Tuckwell. In March 2006 Barry Tuckwell will celebrate his 75th birthday and this Mozart collection also serves as an appropriate birthday tribute to this outstanding artist.
