Product Details


Volker David Kirchner's Konzert für Horn und Orchester is a concerto in the original sense: The solo instrument stands out clearly from the overall sound in all three movements, the work fully exploring its tonal and technical possibilities. Kirchner has never been interested in pushing the boundaries of possibilities of the horn’s sound, preferring to revert to the mysticism of the Romantic era, the horn being considered its natural musical voice. The soloist interacts with three natural horns in the orchestra while changing his position in the concert hall several times. Kirchner combines solo sections and tutti passages by tonal overlapping and develops his motifs freely.
