ASCD03 Jacques-François Gallay: Songs of Love, War and Melancholy

10.00

“Listen to Rubini, Thalberg or Damoreau, 
Or Gallay's horn which in turn combines
The songs of love, war and melancholy; 
You will know that their arts are the most beautiful.”
    ’A Smile – Sonnet‘ 
Revue et gazette musicale de Paris, 3 January, 1839.

The third installment in Anneke Scott’s series of works by the French natural horn player and composer Jacques-François Gallay presents a thrilling programme of operatic fantasias & songs.

These fascinating and unique works mix incredibly virtuosic music with beautifully lyrical melodies deeply influenced by Gallay’s position as solo horn of the Parisian Théâtre Italien. For this final volume in the series, Scott is joined by the celebrated pianist Steven Devine and renowned soprano Lucy Crowe.

In this recording, Anneke Scott performs on a natural horn (cor solo) by Marcel-Auguste Raoux dating from 1823 (Loaned with kind permission by the Bate Collection, University of Oxford), while plays a grand piano by Érard, from 1851. (Loaned with kind permission by the University of Birmingham).
