"...the American Horn Quartet...is the finest brass chamber ensemble in the world." -American Record Guide
Entering its fourth decade and following a hiatus of four years, the American Horn Quartet continues to be unique in the field of brass chamber music. Their exuberant performances have brought audiences all over the world to their feet. In 1982, four American horn players who were working and residing in Europe met for the first time to explore the potential of the horn quartet, a chamber music formation with a surprisingly long tradition. They quickly began to supplement the existing repertoire with their own compositions and arrangements. The group has undergone a few personnel changes since the early days, but has always maintained the highest standards of artistry and technical mastery.
