Out now: "Romantic Brass, Französische Hornpraxis und Historisch Informierter Blasinstrumentenbau"

Anneke's chapter "Jacques-François Gallay - Playing on the Edge" forms part of this magnificient new source. 19th century Romantic Brass is a central part of the research at University of the Arts Bern (HKB).The institution focused initially on projects with keyed trumpets and ophicleides prior to turning their attention to the horn in 19th century France. HKB brings together scientists and practitioners from different disciplines: experts from musicology and science work together with performing musicians and instrument makers. The results are then presented at an international conference with invited experts and finally published.
This volume is centered on the HKB research project on the omnitonic horn of Henri Chaussier and further information on the publication and individual chapters can be found here.

Launch of Mozart: Stolen Beauties disc with Ironwood Chamber Ensemble on ABC Classics.

Mozart left to horn players a lasting legacy of iconic works. Taking one of his most memorable works - Mozart's Quintet in E flat K.447 - Anneke Scott and Ironwood illustrate the various ways in which Mozart’s works have been “appropriated” for the horn, or, in one case how Mozart “appropriated” a work for himself. Through repertoire by Mozart, Michael Haydn, Giovanni Punto and others the musicians explore the golden age of the virtuosic hand horn and the early experimental days of the valve horn.

IRONWOOD
Alice Evans & Julia Fredersdorff - violins
Nicole Forsyth & Heather Lloyd - violas
Daniel Yeadon - cello
Neal Peres Da Costa - fortepiano

The launch of Plumstead Peculiar Press

As part of her recent succesful Kickstarter campaign Anneke produced and published a number of works by the French composer and virtuoso horn player Jacques-François Gallay. Over the last few years Anneke has ammased a library of her own editions of works for horn. Many of the original sources of these works have been hidden away in libraries and she initially produced these editions for her own performances. Seeing the interest that the horn players around the world have had in the editions produced for the Kickstarter campaign it seemed that there was indeed an appetite for new publications of these "peculiar" works and Plumstead Peculiar Press (www.plumstead-peculiars.com) was founded.

 

 

RECENT REVIEWS

"Scott is a wonderfully expressive and agile horn player. She goes for, and gets, maximum emotional impact in each piece. Sometimes she is smooth, sometimes raucous, sometimes singing softly, sometimes dancing with bounce, but she is always musically engaged." The Horn Call July 2014
