This next post is essentially a guilty pleasure of mine. Now that the weather has warmed up and spring is upon us, it would be a good time to show off one of my personal favorites in the horn octet repertoire. This piece is called Farewell to the Red Castle by Kerry Turner and features the Berliner Philharmoniker performing this work. It is not too often to get a recording of a quality professional group of musicians performing music such as this and is always a pleasure to listen to great performing by all the members. Kerry Turner is a low horn player himself, so this piece features many virtuosic passages in the low registers as well as in the upper registers.
