Day 215: Quintet Op 16, Trio Op 11, Horn Sonata

BeethovenCD20Today’s CD contains a lot of my favorite orchestral instruments, especially the French horn, one of the loveliest instruments ever created.

Which is probably why I prefer the last three tracks – Horn Sonata in F Op 17 – over the first six (Quintet in E Flat Op 16 and Trio in B Flat Op 1).

The first six tracks don’t move me.

But the last three are wonderful.

Performers on this CD are:

Klara Wurtz piano
Hans Meijer oboe
Henk de Graaf clarinet
Martin van de Merwe horn
Peter Gaasterland bassoon
Vlad Weverbergh clarinet
Benjamin Glorieux cello
Vasily Ilisavsky piano
Ferenc Tarjani horn
