Thoughts on life and music.

Horn (Greatest Works) - Peter Damm

iTunes can be a treasure trove of unexpected goodies, like this recording I found thanks to a Facebook post. For $10 (!!!!), you get a CD with 31 tracks of excellent horn playing by Peter Damm, with Klaus Pietzonka, Dieter Pansa and Johannes Friemelon on Konzertstück, along with the Dresden Staatskapelle, Carl Phillip Emmanuel Bach chamber orchestra, the Leipzig Radio Orchestra and a number of other great players on the chamber pieces. If you got an iTunes gift card for Christmas, spend it on this. Released in 1965.
