Work introduction

Rihm had long toyed with the notion of writing a horn concerto for Stefan Dohr, the principal horn player with the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra. While György Ligeti’s Horn Concerto makes use of further horns in the orchestra, Rihm chooses to do without, instead giving the soloist lines of exceptional cantabile appeal and rooted in an astonishing colour palette, without allowing the underlying virtuosity to become strikingly visible. A new repertoire piece in the making!
