Format: Audio CD
This 2004 disc contains four standards in the horn chamber music repertoire: Beethoven's Sonata in F for horn and piano; Schubert's Auf dem Strom, for horn, soprano, and piano; Schumann's Adagio and Allegro, for horn and piano; and Brahms's Trio for violin, horn, and piano.

The horn soloist is Wolfgang Toembeck, listed on the liner notes as the principal hornist of the Vienna Philharmonic. Mr. Toembeck has a dark, European tone, more "covered" than the "New York" tone found in the recordings of John Cerminaro, e.g., but not as mellow as Dennis Brain. He proves an able soloist as well as orchestral player, if this album is any proof. In the Beethoven, there is the slightest hint of dragging during the devilishly difficult sixteenth-note passage in the coda; otherwise, it is a perfect rendition. The Schubert and Schumann are very good recordings of important horn works that are hard to find on CD. Each of these pieces present musical challenges to the horn player because of the great varied range, and the prominent role of the piano and, in the case of Auf dem Strom, the soprano. In particular, the Schumann was one of the earliest compositions for the valved horn, and Schumann was eager to test the limits of the newly chromatic instrument.

The performance of the Brahms displays an interpretation I cannot agree with, and a technical mishap that blemishes an otherwise outstanding disc. The detached, almost staccato articulation of the secondary theme in the trio was new to my ears, and I am not persuaded it is correct or preferable to the legato, engulfed version found on, for example, the 1969 Perlman/Tuckwell/Ashekenazy recording (which I consider the gold standard of this work).

Format: Audio CD
Not only does this album feature superb performances by all--the hornist is principal hornist of the Vienna Philharmonic--, but it highlights an instrument virtually unknown outside Austria, although it is enjoying a minor renaissance in the rest of the world. The valve system known as Vienna valves has a long history as applied to the horn, and contributes to the unique sound of the horn section of the Vienna Philharmonic. This is the instrument Brahms and Wagner, among others of the German Romantics, had in mind, and we are fortunate the tradition is being carried on in Austria. The liner notes by Wolfgang Tomboeck explain it all thoroughly. Highly, highly recommended.
