Mozart – Horn Quintet in E flat major, K407;

Schubert – Quartettsatz in C minor, D703;
Schubert – “Auf den Strom”, D943;

An eclectic mix of works mostly starring the horn begins our matinee concerts. The first of two Mozart pieces new to the Festival, the horn quintet, precedes a beautiful Britten song for tenor, horn and piano. Two pieces of Schubert take us into a world premier - Nicholas Korth’s work for tenor, horn, string quartet and keyboard was commissioned by the London Chamber Orchestra and the Guild of Horn Players in 2020.
