COLLAGE BY JAMES HORNER: D-10

COLLAGE BY JAMES HORNER: D-10
Jean-Baptiste Martin
10 days from now will be the world premiere of the latest work in concert composed by James Horner. Its name has been known for a few days: Collage: A Concerto for Four Horns and Orchestra. The composer regularly draws parallels between music and painting. The name may refer to the collage technique of combining separate elements of different natures. We think, for instance, of the famous collages by Henri Matisse.
 
 

This work is co-commissioned by the Houston Symphony and the International Horn Society. Next year the Houston Symphony will perform the North American premiere of the concerto.

David Pyatt


David Pyatt gave us a few words about Collage:
« It's in one movement, looks to be about 20 minutes or so. Looks extremely lyrical and tonal, beautifully written for horn(s)! »
Part of the James Horner Film Music team will attend rehearsals and the Collage world premiere. We look forward to sharing with you very soon our impressions of this new concert work.
