Jacques-Francois Gallay - CD launch concert

On Friday 26 October, Anneke  Scott will be performing at the Schott Recital Room in Great Marlborough Street, London as part of the launch of her new album Prelude, Caprices, Fantaisies - Concerts Caches. The album, released on the Resonus label, features music by the French 19th century composer and horn virtuoso Jacques-Francois Gallay (1795-1864). Scott has recorded the album on an 1823 cor solo by Marcel-August Raoux (loaned by the Oxford Bate Collection) which is identical to Gallay's own instrument. The concert, at 7pm, will feature unaccompanied music for horn by Gallay.

The central works on the disc are Gallay's Caprices for solo horn, spirited and highly improvisatory works. Also on the disc is a select from his Preludes mesure et nonmesures Op 27 and Fantasies Melodiques, Op 58.  See and hear Scott playing some Gallay on Youtube, they are rather amazing pieces.
