The twelve horns of the Dallas and Houston Symphony Orchestras in thrilling recordings of works written or arranged specifically for them and presented in world premiere recordings. The principal horns of the orchestras are Gregory Hustis and William VerMeulen, both of whom have incredible reputations as solo and symphonic players. All the players are superb and this recording is truly unique in its presentation of wonderful horn players playing superb new works for horn ensemble. Pulitzer Prize-nominated James A. Beckel and well-known hornist/composer Kerry Turner wrote the two major original works, both on the theme of the American West. Both pieces are for 12 horns and percussion. Hooked on Williams is a delightful medley from John Williams movie score to Hook, by Anthony DiLorenzo. Roger Kaza's transcription of Barber's Adagio for Strings is particularly beautiful in the horn setting, as is Sterling Procter's version of the traditional Amazing Grace.
