This is for anyone who was wondering what Brandenburg 1 sounds like on two Kruspe double horns. Barry Tuckwell and me (Tony Chidell) recorded this playing our Kruspe double horns with Snivel Marriner in about 1970. I think Tuckers was about 39 and I was about 28. Barry also had an alto device under his chair which he used some of the time but not when there were cameras around.

Obviously if Kruspe horns had been available at the time Bach would have stated his preference for a decent sounding horn made in East Germany as he can't possibly have liked the tiresome bleating and appalling intonation of the so called Baroque things.

Incidentally this version was the brainchild of Thurston Dart so there are two versions of the Trio, one with violins and one with the usual tedious clucking of the hautbois.

By the time we came to record Brandenburg 1 Thurston Dart had died so Barry looked all the 'phrasing' and said "I think we'll ignore those markings and play normally" so we did.

Here are the links to the other horn numbers
