Music of the Week: November 4, 2022: W.A. Mozart – Horn Concerto No. 4 – Rondo



Horn Concerto No. 4 in E-Flat Major, K. 495: III. Rondo Allegro vivace

Horn Concerto No. 4 in E-Flat Major, K. 495: III. Rondo Allegro vivace


With family in Pennsylvania, last week Catherine was able to watch the turning of the leaves in the autumn foliage and enjoyed the start of fox hunting season.

Catherine herself was a big horse rider in her early years and knows the fun and excitement of the hunting sport.

The Rondo Allegro of Mozart’s Horn Concerto No. 4 in E-flat major wonderfully captures the energy of the hunters’ party sallying forth in the early morning hours to follow packs of dogs hunting a fox by scent.

This performance by the Dresden Philharmonic and hornist Sebastian Weigle, today principal conductor of the Yomiuri Nippon Symphony Orchestra (Tokyo), is of particular elegance and buoyancy.
