arc 20017 – Salonmusik für Waldhorn

The Canadian french horn player Renée Allen and the Israeli pianist Zvi Meniker evoke a world which almost got lost: The Bremen music publisher Fischer Verlag was an important part of Bremen’s musical life; unfortunately, the biggest part of his inventory got lost due to sale, expropriation and turmoil of war. It is, therefore, all the more welcome that, apart from an album for french horn, also an instrument survived with the engraving of this Fischer Verlag. Both parts, the album and the instrument, are gathered together for this recording, combined with a  Streicher piano from the same period. An exciting and well-sounding journey to a world not so far from ours – for a Bremen based company a literally nearby project!
