Mozart Horn Concerto No. 1 KV 412/514
I mentioned Ibaraki in my last post about soybeans. Just so noone gets the wrong idea about that particular prefecture, here is the Mito Chamber Orchestra. Seiji Ozawa conducting, and horn virtuoso Radek Baborák does the honours. Mozart's horn concerto is not an easy piece at all.
W.A.Mozart's first Horn Concerto in D major, KV 412/514(386b) I. Allegro, II. Rondo
Compare to Baborák playing the same piece with Barenbaum conducting, not sure where, but I'm pretty sure it is the Berlin Philharmoniker. While in Japan, he has also performed with the NHK Symphony Orchestra.
And, while in Mito, they also performed Mozart's horn concerto No. 2. Here is the rondo.
I'm going to have to add Ibaraki to my list of labels. Anyone in favour?
