In 2006, Detroit Chamber Winds & Strings’ popular Nightnotes series witnessed its best-selling concert to date with “Horns O’ Plenty,” featuring the talented DSO Horn Quartet. On April 4, DCWS welcomes the virtuosic Quartet back for an encore performance entitled “Horns O’ Plenty II.” The concert will be held at Hagopian World of Rugs, home of the Nightnotes series, at 850 S. Old Woodward. A complimentary reception will precede the concert, beginning at 8 p.m., followed by the performance at 8:30.
Hand-picked by the musicians themselves, the works featured on the program represent the best of horn repertoire from the Baroque era to today. Commencing with a selection of 17th century madrigals, the quartet will go on to showcase their master musicianship with Bach’s intricate Fugue in C-minor.
In homage to Austrian composer and horn player Anton Wunderer, known in his day as the “Johann Strauss of the horn quartet,” the group will play a pair of the marches for which he was famous. The concert will come to a close with some of Lowell Shaw’s delightful jazz-fan-friendly Fripperies.
