ASCD01 Jacques-François Gallay - Préludes, Caprices & Fantaisies

10.00

Anneke Scott's new album release on Resonus Classics: Making her Resonus debut, renowned natural horn player Anneke Scott performs a collection of virtuosic solo works by nineteenth-century French composer and hornist Jacques-François Gallay (1795-1864), based around his Douze Grands Caprices, Op. 32 of 1838.

Recorded as the culmination of a period of research into the composer, and believed to consist entirely of world premiere recordings on an original instrument, each highly spirited and improvisatory Caprice is framed by a selection from Gallay's Préludes mesurés et nonmesurés, Op. 27 and his Fantasies Mélodiques, Op. 58.

Of special interest is the 1823 "cor solo" by Marcel-Auguste Raoux used for this recording - generously loaned from Oxford's Bate Collection - which is identical to Gallay's own instrument.
