The sound of the horn epitomized stormy emotions for composers of Romantic music. Robert Schumann is said to have spoken of the horn as being the orchestra's soul. For poets, the horn's sound was a symbol of the soul's longing. For horn players, however, what was at stake for much of the Romantic period was the soul of the horn itself, for it was an instrument that faced experiment and change occasioned by new technology, notably the invention of the valve. This recording explores and illustrates this important era in the evolution of the horn.

Music by Paul Dukas, Charles Gounod, Camille Saint-Saëns, Emanuel Chabrier, Carl Czerny, Franz Strauss, Robert Schumann and Richard Strauss
