Music for Horn - Brahms: Horn Trio; Schumann: Adagio & Allegro; Reinecke: Trio
Jasper de Waal is not only the beloved principal hornist of the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra; he is also a world class soloist, giving masterclasses and playing solo concertos and chamber music recitals around the world. This release celebrates his twenty-fifth anniversary as a professional musician. The three composers featured here, Brahms, Reinecke and Schumann, do nothing to hide their fondness for the sound of the horn; their passion, is evident in all three pieces. They make wonderful use of the instrument's potential and the typical character of its sound in combination with the other instruments.
