For Wolfgang Rihm the horn is the “instrument of melos” par excellence. He has now written a horn concerto for Stefan Dohr, the principal horn player with the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra, in which Dohr can show what his instrument is capable of: wide, seemingly endless arches and an impressive delivery of force. However, the virtuosity lies not only in the fast passages, but also in depth: the invention of sounds.
