Jeff Nelsen's new recording a real winner!
New York, Sept 16, 2010 – Congratulations to Canadian Brass hornist Jeff Nelsen on his new recording of the Brahms Horn Trio, Op. 40. Jeff is joined by veteran violinist Ik-Hwan Bae and new piano sensation Naomi Kudo in an intimate reading of one of the most revered and best-loved chamber works in the classical canon. Along with the Brahms Horn Trio is the premier recording of the Mozart Horn Quintet, K. 407, adapted for horn, violin and piano by noted arranger Tony Rickard.
The album has already gotten some notable attention. Dale Clevenger, principal horn of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra gushed “the new Brahms Horn Trio by the wonderful hornist Jeff Nelsen of the Canadian Brass is a “MUST HEAR” performance which, I am sure, will be received with high musical and technical praise of his artistry. Enjoy!”
Keith Lockhart, conductor of the Boston Pops Orchestra, also offered “Jeff Nelsen is an extraordinarily sophisticated artist on the horn. A subtle wonderfully controlled and very musically satisfying account of the Brahms Horn Trio.”
This is the debut album on the new Soloists of the Canadian Brass imprint on Opening Day Records and was released on September 14, 2010.
