Felix Klieser French Horn
Martin Klett Piano


Felix Klieser showcases his skill for chamber music as part of his tenure as BSO Artist-in-Residence in this recital of diverse works which demonstrate the full scope of the French Horn. In 1849 Schumann turned to a new genre: works for piano and accompanying instrument. His wife, Clara, premiered the new piece describing it as “splendid, fresh and passionate, just as I like it!”. One of the most popular performance pieces for the horn, Paul Dukas wrote his Villanelle as a demanding exam piece but it is definitely not a dry study with its abundance of refreshing melodies. In the summer of 1888, while also working on his tone poem Don Juan, Richard Strauss composed this brief Andante for his father, Franz Strauss. It was intended as the slow movement of a sonata that Strauss never completed. Beethoven always aspired to treat the various genres in the most original way possible which is why horn players continue to enjoy playing this sonata. Comprising a Nocturne, Intermezzo, Romance and Valse Triste these four pieces are testaments to Gliere’s gift for melody and romanticism. Lighthearted and playful, Joseph Rheinberger’s sonata of 1894 is full of appealing and memorable melodies.
