FROM THE ARTIST -

The works on this album are a series of four Baroque transcriptions for horn and organ. My intention in transcribing and recording these works was to add to the horn repertoire, giving the greater horn community access to new Baroque solo literature. Two transcriptions (Marcello and Albinoni) were taken from oboe concertos and two (J.S. Bach and Telemann) from oboe d’amore concertos. All of these works were originally accompanied with small string ensemble and continuo. I chose music originally composed for oboe and oboe d’amore because the melodies were both beautiful and accessible for the modern day horn player. These melodies also embody four different types of Baroque style and melodic mastery. I chose the organ to accompany the horn because it is an instrument that was prominent to the period in which these works were written. This pairing of the organ with horn provides a sense of historical balance; the horn, as a modern instrument, reflects the present, while the organ honors the past.
