Synopsis

Product Description
The London Horn Sound builds on the extraordinary tradition of French Horn playing in London (formerly the home to the talents of Dennis Brain, Alan Civil and Barry Tuckwell) and brings together for the first time, today's generation of world-class London-based players including Richard Bissell, Nigel Black, Anthony Halstead, Frank Lloyd, David Pyatt, Hugh Seenan, Michael Thomson and Richard Watkins. From Mozart to Queen, Rossini to Ellington, with a tip of the hat to film soundtracks in the shape of James Horner's fantasy from the box office smashing epic movie Titanic, complemented by deft and sensitive arrangements this is a truly unique showcase for the cream of the London crop.

CD Reviews

State of the Art Brass Playing
Joe H Dixon | Texas | 01/02/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Cala Records is certainly to be commended for its excellent series highlighting a single musical instrument performed by the best London professionals on that instrument. "London Horn Sound" is, like others in the series, extraordinary playing. Surely there is no other city in the world with this many fine horn players (all are members of London's many fine orchestral ensembles and recording studios). The "cream" of London's fine professional hornists are featured playing a broad selection of music from Wagner & Rossini to Freddie Mercury and film music from "Titanic." This CD is a *must* for horn players. If you're a fan of trombonists, also get "The London Trombone Sound." Brilliant musical arrangements!"
Absolutely Inspirational

"This is THE CD I listen to on the way to rehearsal. It truly inspires me to do my absolute best! You've got to love Roman Carnival - so excellent! I would recommend this CD to anyone, especially horn and brass players. These performers are just phenomenal. What else is there to say?

"
The horn playing will "knock your socks off."

"The London Horn Sound is an excellent showcase of virtuoso horn playing. Technique, tone, and ensemble are superb. The arrangements are well done and exploit the capabilities of the horn. Especially exciting are "Roman Carnival Overture" and Duke Ellington' "Caravan." This is a fun and exciting album for any lover of French horn music."
