Anneke Scott (horn)
Steven Devine (piano)

Renowned period hornist Anneke Scott returns to Resonus with a programme of works for horn that chart a fascinating and pivotal period in the development of the instrument and its repertoire in nineteenth-century France.

Joined by Steven Devine, this album, which celebrates 200 years since the birth of Charles Gounod, features a selection of works composed for both natural and piston horns by Charles Gounod, Joseph-Émile Meifred and Jacques-François Gallay, as well as a Gounod arrangement by François Brémond, all performed on original period horns and a grand piano by Érard.
