Horn Trios by Brahms and Ligeti
William Purvis, horn

$ 14.99

"Brahms wrote this Trio in 1865 when he was 32, during his usual summer vacation in Baden-Baden. The opening has the lovely sunny quality you might expect. But there's also a deep vein of nostalgia, signaled by the presence of the horn, which Brahms played as a child. And stronger feelings of distress soon make themselves heard. This recording captures every side of this many-sided piece - the tenderness and sudden attacks of panic or pain as much as the rumbustious good humour."
