  • SJSS

    8 October 13.05 (GMT + 1) 

    Saint John's Smith Square - London

    Anneke Scott – horn
    Consone Quartet

    Mozart’s Stolen Beauties - works for natural horn and strings

    Anonymous - Air varié pour corno (sur 'Là ci darem la mano')
    Michael Haydn - Romance in Ab major for horn and strings (MH 806, Op. II)
    Beethoven - String Quartet, Op.18
    Mozart - Quintet in Eb major for horn and strings, K.407/386c

    Mozart left to horn players a lasting legacy of iconic works. Like double bass players, constantly being asked if they ‘had wished they played the flute’ – strangers whistle the opening bars of the famous Rondo of K.495 to horn players innocently wishing to go about their business. Either that, or they sing ‘I found my horn, gorn,’ in the immortal words of Michael Flanders. Alongside one of Mozart’s most memorable works - the Quintet in E flat for horn and strings K.447 - Anneke Scott and the Consone Quartet illustrate the various ways in which Mozart’s works have been “appropriated” for the horn with the virtuosic theme and variations written for London’s most famous horn player of the 19th century, Giovanni Puzzi, plus perform a work Mozart “appropriated” for himself with the curious history of Michael Haydn’s Romance for horn and strings.
