From an in-studio concert recorded by Radio France in 1957, a performance of Poeme for Horn and Orchestra by Charles Koechlin. With the Symphony Orchestra of Radio France conducted by Manuel Rosenthal.
Koechlin, at one time a frequently played and talked about French composer during the early part of the last century, has fallen on obscure times of late, with not very many of his prolific catalog of works performed or even recorded outside of France. And even in France he is not that much of a household name any more.
But during his time, Charles Koechlin was a much revered and popular composer. This piece, originally starting life as a Sonata for Horn and Piano was orchestrated in the late 1920's and enjoyed a good deal of popularity.
So here, by way of the Transcription Service of Radio France is the Poeme For Horn and Orchestra by Charles Koechlin.
