SCO horn players Alec Frank-Gemmill and Harry Johnstone are soloists in Heinichen’s Sonata (Suite) in F for two horns and strings, which is framed by Telemann’s Water Music Suite in C ‘Ebb and Flow’ and Bach’s Suite No 4 in D. Richard also directs from the harpsichord (described by himself as the 'machine that goes ping') for Bach’s Harpsichord Concerto in D minor.
|Described as the ‘The Leonard Bernstein of Early Music’, Richard Egarr is in great demand as a soloist and chamber musician, as well as a conductor. In a recent interview with BBC Radio 3 In Tune Richard discussed his long-standing relationship with the SCO and his passion for early music, ahead of his concerts with the Orchestra this week.|
Why not watch Richard talk about the history behind Heinichen's Concerto in F for two horns and strings and Bach's Harpsichord Concerto in D minor in our video recorded this week:
