Description: Authentic instrument performances of operatic fantasies for horn and piano from the early Romantic period when the French just couldn't get enough of these things and the more exotic the solo instrument apparently the better. Gallay was the foremost horn player of his time and a teacher as well. The soloist here provides nine pages of notes on Gallay and the pieces recorded. French-English texts. Anneke Scott (1823 Raoux cor-solo), Lucy Crowe (soprano), Steven Devine (1851 Érard piano).
