This latest CD on our OAE RELEASED Label features the Orchestra’s Principal Horn, Roger Montgomery, as soloist in Mozart’s Horn Concertos, in performances directed by OAE Leader Margaret Faultless.
Written for Mozart’s childhood friend, the horn player Joseph Leitgeb, these compositions shine with a palpable sense of affection, perhaps most notably in the unforgettable hunting call of the fourth horn concerto, featuring playful dialogue between Orchestra and horn and famously parodied by Flanders and Swann in 1964.
This video features Roger during rehearsal, talking about the piece and the techniques used in playing the Natural Horn.
RELEASED 25 November
Special introductory price of £9.50 until 25 November (£9.99 from 25 November)
