Etienne Cutajar is a star of the future and an extraordinarily gifted horn player. This CD presents music for horn with piano, with harp and solo. Included are two world première recordings: the Fantasie Sonata by Charles Camilleri (who attended the recording sessions and was most delighted with the performance!) and Jean-Michel Damase’s “Aspects”.

Booklet notes in English, French, German.

Reviews

Musical Opinion

The musicianship of this gifted young Maltese horn player is first-class throughout…this is a welcome CD and highly recommended

” —Robert Matthew-Walker
MusicWeb

Cutajar shows considerable promise as a soloist… his technique, especially in the modern works, leaves little to be desired.
