Rhapsodie: Fantasie: Poème

Greg Barns
Hobart Mercury (Australia)

Hobart-born Ben Jacks is principal horn with the Sydney Symphony Orchestra, and Barry Tuckwell, one of the highest-profile Australian musicians in the world, conducts Orchestra Victoria and the Queensland Orchestra in this intriguing sample of 19th- and 20th-century French horn music. Includes works by Dukas and Saint-Saëns alongside contemporary composer Jean-Michel Damase, and the world premiere recording of George Marshall-Hall's Phantasy. The album presents a vivid blend of colour and sound.
