French Horn Masterclass with Peter Damm

French Horn Masterclass with Peter Damm

“Composed just a week after the Fantasiestücke, the Adagio and Allegro, Op 70 in A flat major, for horn and piano (issued with alternative parts for violin or cello), delighted Schumann when he heard Clara rehearse it with Julius Schlitterlau, first horn in the Dresden Orchestra. Her response was even more euphoric: ‘A magnificent piece, fresh and passionate, and exactly what I like.’ Originally entitled Romanze, the Adagio is a tender colloquy for the two instruments that exploits both the heights and the depths of the new valve-horn. Schumann gives free rein to the horn’s agility in the Allegro, whose rollicking spirits are stilled in a central episode in B major that recalls the yearning melody of the Adagio.” *
“Peter Damm (born 1937, Meiningen, Thüringen) is a German horn player. He graduated from the Franz Liszt Academy in 1957. In 1959 he was appointed as principal horn of the Leipzig Gewandhaus Orchestra, and from 1969 to 2002 he was principal horn at the Dresden Staatskapelle. Damm has been described as “legendary”[1] – he is known for both his exceptional abilities as a player, and for his editions of many of the standard works in the horn repertoire, published by Breitkopf.” **

Patricia Petibon

“With this new record, soprano Patricia Petibon makes a welcome return to French repertoire on disc, exploring the fascinating world of French art song in this extraordinary new album.
The record features all-time favorites by Satie, Fauré, Poulenc, Reynaldo Hahn, Manuel Rosenthal, but also popular hits by Léo Ferré. This selection takes the listener on an exciting journey of discovery: from the decadence of the cabarets of turn-of-the-century Paris to the melancholy of the 60s, from the eccentricity of the fin-de-siècle to modern-day spleen.
This original program is a collection of often humorous and eccentric songs with a deeper subtext.
Petibon is joined on this occasion by her accompanist and partner of many years, the superb pianist Susan Manoff, and a number of high-profile guests stemming from diverse musical backgrounds and influences, including star violinist Nemanja Radulović and actor Olivier Py” *

“Fantasio is an 1872 opéra comique in 3 acts, 4 tableaux with music by Jacques Offenbach. The French libretto was by Paul de Musset closely based on the play of the same name by his brother Alfred de Musset. The opera found little success in Offenbach’s lifetime, was revived in the 1930s and performed in a critical edition in the 2000s.” *
