The London Horn Sound
Conducted by Geoffrey Simon

THE LONDON HORN SOUND builds on the extraordinary tradition of French Horn playing in London (formerly the home to the talents of Dennis Brain, Alan Civil and Barry Tuckwell) and brings together for the first time, today's generation of London's world-calss London-based players including Richard Bissill, Nigel Black, Anthony Halstead, Frank Lloyd, David Payatt, Hugh Seenan, Michael Thompson and Richard Watkins.   All eight currently fill or have recently occupied the principal horn chairs of Londonís leading orchestras.   They form the core ensemble of THE LONDON HORN SOUND, which features, in total, 30 of Englandís top horn players.
