Richard Bissill - Three Portraits (Horn Octet)

Richard Bissill - Three Portraits (Horn Octet)

Commissioned by the British Horn Society in 1990 to celebrate its 10th anniversary, this challenging yet fun piece was recorded by the Guildhall School Horn Ensemble and is available on Cala Records CACD 1036. For conservatories and professionals.

Review: "Finally there is Three Portraits written for eight horns and once more played by the talented and youthful Guildhall Ensemble. A rich and warmly hued work, fizzing with an ear for sonority and for tunes. The opening portrait is On Vacation and is a kind of 'Heldenleben meets Star Wars' affair full of chatty personality, whilst the second sports a melody of almost Bernstein like proportions and one that slowly emerges with real distinction. The finale is a jaunty high-spirited romp. This is a delightful work and a splendid addition to the horn ensemble repertoire." - Music Web September 1994
