The Horn Trio: It's Not Just Brahms Anymore

Performer: The Los Angeles Horn Trio

Please come listen to the Los Angeles Horn Trio, as they continue their ongoing search for new and rarely heard works for horn, violin and piano. Following their mission to unearth compositions from the past, discover pieces of the present day, and with a look to the future, their program will begin with Frédéric Duvernoy’s Trio No. 1 in C Major. Residing in both Los Angeles and London, John Scott is a film and television composer and also a woodwind player, having played in the Royal Air Force Band with hornists Dennis Brain and Alan Civil. His colorful House of Shadows is another staple of the Los Angeles Horn Trio’s repertoire. One of the most important parts of the ensemble’s goal is to commission new works. Therefore, on the program will be a world premiere by Los Angeles composer Frederick Lesemann, whose compositions have been performed by orchestras, chamber ensembles, and soloists worldwide. He served on the composition faculty of the USC Thornton School of Music for forty-nine years.
