LABELS: Crystal
WORKS: Horn Sonata, Op. 178
PERFORMER: Douglas Hill (horn), Karen Zaczek Hill (piano)
CATALOGUE NO: CD 373
These two sonatas by German composers from the beginning and end of the 19th century are heavily influenced by Beethoven and Brahms respectively. Douglas Hill’s performances are knowingly phrased and carefully paced, but the studio sound from 1980 has not aged well. Christopher Mowat
