“This collection of pieces from the 19th and 20th centuries is intended to display the increasing range and versatility of the French horn following the addition of valves to the instrument – although the essential sonic personality remains unchanged throughout, from the mournful grace of Saint-Saëns’s “Romance for Horn & Piano” to Poulenc’s “Elegie” written in the late 1950s in memoriam of horn player Dennis Brain.”

Das Horn ist in seiner solistischen Erscheinung gewöhnlich nicht gerade ein Publikumsrenner. Entsprechend selten ist es im Konzertsaal zu hören.

“Guglielmo Pellarin, principal horn in the Santa Cecilia National Academy Orchestra in Rome, turns in a program of six works by five French composers. Some of these are well known to horn players, others less so.”

“An excellent recording of Italians playing French music. Guglielmo Pellarin is principal horn of the Santa Cecilia Academy Orchestra in Rome; Federico Lovato has a thriving career as pianist, cellist, and artistic director of the orchestra I Solisti in Villa.”
