    Album information

    Horn player Sarah Willis presents beautiful arrangements of well-loved repertoire by Tchaikovsky, Dvořák, Bizet and Debussy, alongside new commissions, including the Willisabethan Sarahnade by Klaus Wallendorf who played alongside Sarah in the Berlin Philharmonic.

    'The French horn is notoriously difficult to play. You can practise all you like but there is no guarantee that the note you blow into the mouthpiece is the same one which will come out of the bell once it has travelled through all the twists and turns of the tubing. However, when all goes well, the horn is glorious and I absolutely love being a horn player, even with all risks – and maybe even because of them.' – Sarah Willis.

    After the enormous success of Mozart y Mambo (ALPHA578) which went straight to Number 1 in Germany on release in 2020, Alpha has decided to reissue one of the first albums recorded by this multi-talented and tireless ambassador of the French horn. In this re-release of the 2014 album, Horn Discoveries, Sarah demonstrates all the rich potential of her instrument with exciting original compositions and beautiful arrangements of Tchaikovsky’s Souvenir d’un lieu cher, Dvořák’s Humoresque, Bizet’s Les Pêcheurs de Perles and Debussy’s Clair de Lune.
