The Deutschlandfunk Kammermusiksaal, Cologne, Germany. Animated Cheerful Gentle Jovial Lively Melancholy Melodic Playful Rustic. Alec Frank-Gemmill, Alasdair Beatson. A Noble and Melancholy Instrument: Music for horns and pianos of the 19th century.
The 19th century saw huge developments in the design of many musical instruments. In some cases changes were adopted more or less universally: the fortepiano that Mozart knew, a five-octave instrument constructed entirely of wood, had by around 1900 grown into the modern grand piano with over seven octaves and a cast-iron frame. With other instruments, progress was less streamlined. In the first half of the program, hornist Alec Frank-Gemmill uses a variety of natural horns. Sample the quiet passage at the end of the finale, one of several places on the album where the talents of instrument maker, performer, and composer seem to converge as they might have in a successful performance of the work in its own time. Another standout is the Prelude, Theme, and Variations of Rossini, from his Sins of My Old Age collections.
