Descripción del producto

Hermann Baumann is one of the world's greatest horn players. He won the ARD International Music Competition in Munich 1964 (Jessye Norman was 2nd that year, and won in 1965), and from then on he played in some of the greatest orchestras, conductors and ensembles in the world. Claudio Abbado asked him during rehearsals in Rome for Mahler 6 why aren't you in Berlin?' He played with Concerto Amsterdam under Jaap Schröder, for Karl Munchinger and the Stuttgart Chamber Orchestra, and for Nikolaus Harnoncourt and Concentus Musicus Wien. A lifetime of concert giving around the world and an extensive discography has ensured that his stupendous technique and versatility, and characterful playing has been heard and admired by thousands of music lovers. This extensive survey of his art embraces the major concertos and some rarities, some fascinating chamber works, and a selection of virtuoso showpieces that display the artistry of this multi-faceted musician.

Great service. Product came exactly as described. My issue, however, is with the packaging. All the CD's came in their own cardboard sleeve, instead of the typical CD holder. This makes it a chore getting the CD's in and out, and may cause scratching later down the road. Really annoying when I'm in a hurry to calm myself or the kids. Mr Baumann's renditions of these pieces is spot on, and superbly recorded. The real majesty and beauty of his talent, I feel, comes from the slower pieces. He is a true master.

Like numerous other soloists of considerable repute, Hermann Baumann is not only possessed of an immaculate technical prowess he is also possessed of an immediately recognisable sound world. In his case this must initially focus on the actual sound that he produces which is essentially of a singing and lyrical nature. This is true of his work both with natural horns as well as a modern horn as used throughout this extensive anthology. This is reinforced by his choice of horn which has the timbre of a relatively narrow bore which aids his remarkable agility and limits the sheer power of the wider bored instruments common in modern orchestras.

There is one other characteristic that Baumann has in abundance and that is what makes his playing and this set so special and arguably unique. That is the over-riding sense of joy – a joy in the music, of making music and simply that of the joy of playing his horn. Joy such as this is a rare phenomenon and its communication is both unmissable and unforgettable.

Every one of the tracks throughout this extensive collection is a joy. The whole set was bought for the Weber Concertino which had been a valued LP, long since departed. Barry Tuckwell’s version sadly simply fails to ‘fly’ and merely sounds ponderous by comparison. This version, unlike its predecessor, uses a modern horn but is otherwise identical in verve. The same can be said of the Mozart concertos which retain the joyful ‘bounce’ of the earlier natural horn set with Harnoncourt but supported by vastly superior orchestral playing. This set joins many others that are notably successful such as those by Tuckwell (on the earlier Maag / LSO recording), the Orpheus Chamber orchestra set, Koster’s natural horn set and Jonathan Williams. There are plenty of others of these popular concertos of course.

The Haydn concerto disc includes the lesser known second concerto and a double horn concerto attributed curiously to both Michael Haydn and Rosetti. The disc is completed by an enjoyable concerto by Pokorny (1729-94) which is well worth experiencing. The double concerto also exhibits the remarkable matching of horn timbres by the players, in this case Timothy Brown. That matching of timbres is also notable on the Telemann disc where the additional players are Timothy Brown again and Nicholas Hill. The final disc in the set is devoted to music featuring ensembles of horn players with music ranging from that of Michel Corrette (1709-95) through to Gaston Chalmel (1907-93). The main content of the disc is devoted to an arrangement by Baumann of the Grande Messe de Saint Hubert by Jules Cantin (1874-1956). This disc illustrates the natural horn.

The Weber disc is completed by the two Richard Strauss concertos, both played in typical fluent, joyful and exuberant style by Baumann. This disc alone is worth the price of the set and the Strauss performances join the rarefied ranks of Pyatt especially but also Thompson and Lloyd (concerto 1 only) amongst other fine exponents of these superb works.

Horn and piano works make up the recital on disc 4 which includes the fine sonata by Beethoven as well as less familiar works by Czerny, Rossini, von Krufft and is concluded with Richard Strauss’s lovely Andante. Once more, this is a disc offering immaculate playing and enjoyment. Disc 5 introduces a rewarding concerto by Gliere as well as attractive works by Saint Saens, Chabrier and Dukas.

The whole set of seven discs is ordered in broadly chronological order which makes for an interesting survey of the development of Horn repertoire. The recordings date from 1984-1990 and are all good in terms of balance and sound reproduction. The accompanying booklet offers a résumé of Baumann’s career which has obviously been a journey of much joy to the player. Even his heart attack of 1993 failed to stop his horn playing and after his determined recovery he has played as soloist in 27 countries. His spirit seems irrepressible and it is that which communicates so strongly throughout this set.

This is a remarkable set faithfully conveying the joy of Baumann’s artistry as well as his extraordinary talent for communication.
