Just discovered this piece (“A Summer’s Tale” by Josef Suk) thanks to a recent Berlin Philharmonic broadcast! One of the biggest orchestral English horn parts, and it’s for TWO English horns! This is the complete third movement, subtitled “Blind Musicians”

Thank you, Albrecht Mayer. (The choral version remains my fave, but this is lovely!)

That solo. Well, it IS all about English horn this time!

Written as a reflection on his first experiences in the United States, Dvo?ák’s Ninth Symphony is also known as the New World Symphony. Drawing on his own experience in lockdown, our Principal Cor Anglais Alexandre Oguey has made his own arrangement of the famous symphony for five cor anglais with a very fitting name – ‘New Isolation Symphony’.

Jose Antonio Masmano Villar plays some of Pulcinella by Stravinsky. And it is ever so lovely. (Many thanks to Anne Krabill for bringing this to my attention.)
