Any fan of the beautiful horn must have this CD.

"Tuckwell has put together a double CD recording of some truly magnificent horn performances. Anyone who appreciates the beauty and complexity of the horn will adore this recording. The performances of L. Mozart and the Haydns' horn concertos are particularly well-done. The entire CD is great listening, and at some portions of the CD, you'll be left amazed at Tuckwell's skill on this splendid instrument. The music is perfect for the casual classical listener or the horn maniac. Highly recommended."

"This entire CD is a very enjoyable trip through some of the lesser known works for solo horn (i.e. not the standard Strauss and Mozart concerti). The wizardry that Tuckwell displays is most evident on the 3rd movement of concerto #11 by Punto - some of the slurring and rapid alternating of widely disparate notes is flat out the most amazing technical skill on the horn that I have ever heard. Musically this movement is somewhat contrived and even a bit cheesy but Tuckwell blows through these incredibly difficult passages and at the end hits what sounds like a low C or B flat and every time it is absolutely dead on in pitch and entry. It is hard not to laugh at the technical expertise as it does not sound like it would be possible on a standard horn."
Wonderful pieces not just for the horn enthusiast

"I owned this on LP and was bowled over by the playing. Now to have it on CD is fabulous-I think I wore out the record. Everything here is a pleasure: the music, playing, and recording. NOT background music but great beauty and virtuosic playing by Tuckwell that keeps your attention riveted."
