Spectra Horn Quartet on Classical 101-Plays with ProMusica this Weekend
The Spectra Horn Quartet performs one of the classics of the horn literature this weekend with ProMusica Chamber Orchestra...Robert Schumann's Konzertstück for 4 Horns and Orchestra. When it was first written, the modern chromatic valve horn was still in it's very early stages, meaning most of the world's horn players were much more comfortable with the natural horn. Many said it was unplayable.
Spectra Horn Quartet joined me in the Classical 101 studios for some music-making and conversation about the upcoming weekend of performances, beginning with some of Bizet's Carmen.
Then a complete change of gears...a Lennon-McCartney Favorite...Eleanor Rigby.
Then they closed with a real tightrope walk...Khatchaturian's Sabre Dance.
Spectra Horn Quartet does two performances with ProMusica Chamber Orchestra this weekend at the Southern Theatre. Details at promusicacolumbus.org.
