Info for #hornlikes
The horns are let loose! In their fifth GENUIN release, the german hornsound brass ensemble has brought together their favorite works and those of their fan community. And we’d be hard-pressed to find a single work in the Western musical literature that doesn’t sound at least as beautiful arranged for four horns as it does in the original. What’s more, there’s no need for troublesome singers, meddlesome conductors, and big stages for massive orchestras! In these splendid renditions, Handel’s Rinaldo, Dvořák’s Ninth Symphony, and Mendelssohn’s Midsummer Night’s Dream are both glorious and groovy, exquisite and ethereal, sophisticated and sexy. I like #hornlikes!
german hornsound, Horn Quartet
The horn quartet “german hornsound” was founded in 2009 by four former students of Professor Christian Lapert’s horn class at the University of Music and Performing Arts, Stuttgart. All four horn players currently hold positions in professional orchestras: the Württemberg Philharmonic Orchestra in Reutlingen, the State Opera in Hanover, the Berlin Concert House Orchestra and the Bamberg Symphony Orchestra.
The ensemble’s repertoire comprises all epochs of music history including both original works and arrangements. german hornsound’s own arrangements also offer more programme variety than the established horn quartet repertoire.
Since its inception, german hornsound has repeatedly been invited to play at festivals such as the “Festival Mitte Europa”, the festival summer at Schloss Seehof and the “Ebracher Musiksommer”.
For 2013, german hornsound has developed their own project in cooperation with the well-known South Tyrolean author, Herbert Rosendorfer, and the Berlin dramaturg, Karl-Dietrich Gräwe, to honour the anniversaries of both Richard Wagner and Giuseppe Verdi. The quartet will perform this opera fragment in three acts, called “Siegfried and Violetta”, at leading festivals such as the “Schleswig-Holstein Musik Festival”, the “Festspiele Mecklenburg-Vorpommern”, the “Oberstdorfer Musiksommer”, the “Vielklang-Sommer Tübingen”, as well as the “Festival zwischen Inn und Salzach”.
Further performances will take place in Nuremberg, Chur and Davos.
In the summer of 2013, german hornsound will also premiere (in cooperation with the Bavarian broadcaster “Bayerischer Rundfunk”) a commissioned composition of the Norwegian composer Trygve Madsen for four horns and orchestra with the Bavarian Youth Orchestra.
