Following an astounding performance in our Winter Festival 2013, Associate Artists La Nuova Musica are again joined by virtuoso horn player and BBC Radio 3 New Generation Artist Alec Frank-Gemmill.

Together they present a collection of baroque arias and concertos for multiple horns, including works from Handel’s Serse and Giulio Cesare that demonstrate the sensitivity and versatility of this technically fiendish instrument.

“…Alec Frank-Gemill, a player of rare composure and subtlety…”
