There has been some doubt about the authenticity of Haydn’s Horn Concerto No. 2 but there is no doubt that it is a genuinely fine work for the natural horn. Wilhelm Brun is a specialist on this instrument and has made a name for himself as a chamber musician and soloist. These more obscure works make an interesting addition to this series.
Franz Joseph Haydn: Horn Concerto No. 1 in D major, Hob.VIId:3
Franz Joseph Haydn: Horn Concerto No. 2 in D major, Hob.VIId:4
I. Allegro moderato
Franz Joseph Haydn: Symphony No. 31 in D major, Hob.I:31, "Horn Signal"
IV. Finale: Moderato molto - Presto
“[Bruns] plays [the concerti] on a valveless horn as if they're the best music ever written for the instrument and consequently turns in gripping performances, full of wit and wisdom.”
“Wilhelm Bruns's solo execution is virtuosic and makes an excellent case for his valveless instrument...The three players who join Bruns in [the Hornsignal] prove worthy colleagues, and the 'period' sonority of the ensemble seems perfectly apt for the score.”
