Goldscheider. Waarts. Milstein
In his mid-20s, the native Londoner, who studied at the Barenboim-Said Academy in Berlin, is already one of the world's outstanding horn players: Ben Goldscheider not only plays technically superbly, he is also an enthusiastic chamber musician and ever-curious pioneer of contemporary music. György Ligeti composed his Horn Trio in 1982 as an "Hommage à Brahms", whose classic work of 1865 with the same instrumentation had no adequate counterpart in the repertoire until then. At the dawn of postmodernism, the erstwhile avant-gardist Ligeti turns back to Beethoven all at once – and finds a melancholy tone that transfers Brahms' melancholy into the present in a touching way.
