Description: There’s nothing like hearing a ripe, tangy period horn ripping through the Schumann Allegro section or the warm and velvety singing sound of a French piston horn, with hand-stopping, in the romantic Glazunov and the other two horns contribute their own special characteristics in their pieces. And what a beautiful fortepiano in the Beethoven! Alec Frank-Gemill (c.1800 French cor d’orchestre, end of 19th cen. Vienna Wienerhorn, 1823 French Cor solo, beginning 20th cen. Belgian Cor à pistons), Alasdair Beatson (c.1815 Lagrassa fortepiano, 1847 Streicher, 1867 Blüthner, 1898 Bechstein pianos).
