Description: Rosetti wrote 16 solo horn concertos. We can't tell you that neither of these have been recorded before since there is a limited number of keys in which horn concertos are written, leading to several being in the same key. In addition, the Murray numbers (Kaul numbers are also given on this release) are often not used on other recordings when one compares works. What we can say is that the two double-horn concertos are not the same two which feature in a 4 CD budget-priced cpo set we offered back in October 2005 and that this recording follows up a 2003 Rosetti release by the same soloists on this label.
