This CD from our OAE RELEASED Label features the Orchestra’s Principal Horn, Roger Montgomery, as soloist in Mozart’s Horn Concertos, in performances directed by OAE Leader Margaret Faultless.
Written for Mozart’s childhood friend, the horn player Joseph Leitgeb, these compositions shine with a palpable sense of affection, perhaps most notably in the unforgettable hunting call of the fourth horn concerto, featuring playful dialogue between Orchestra and horn and famously parodied by Flanders and Swann in 1964.
