Hermann Baumann is one of the world’s greatest horn players. He won the ARD International Music Competition in Munich 1964 (Jessye Norman was second that year, and won in 1965), and from then on he played in some of the greatest orchestras, conductors and ensembles in the world. Claudio Abbado asked him during rehearsals in Rome for Mahler 6 ‘why aren’t you in Berlin?’ He played with Concerto Amsterdam under Jaap Schröder, for Karl Munchinger and the Stuttgart Chamber Orchestra, and for Nikolaus Harnoncourt and Concentus Musicus Wien. A lifetime of concert giving around the world and an extensive discography has ensured that his stupendous technique and versatility, and characterful playing has been heard and admired by thousands of music lovers.

This extensive survey of his art embraces the major concertos and some rarities, some fascinating chamber works, and a selection of virtuoso showpieces that display the artistry of this multi-faceted musician.

Booklet essay by Hermann Baumann, recollecting his career.

Gramophone Magazine

June 1985

“Hermann Baumann is the principal soloist in all five [Telemann] works and, while using a modern instrument to virtuoso effect, reproduces the brilliant tone of the baroque original. The other horn soloists blend well and an excellent balance has been achieved throughout”

Gramophone Magazine

May 1993

“He plays the whole programme very well… Masur gives rich-textured accompaniments with the Leipzig orchestra, especially lush in the Straussian passages of the Gliere and the orchestral interludes of the Chabrier – in both there is a real feeling of ecstasy at times. Excellent recording too, warm and full and not muddy”
