Johannes Brahms’ 1865 horn trio was composed in memory of his mother, and brought together an interesting combination of instruments. No doubt inspired by this piece, in 1910 the composer Ernst Naumann made an imaginative arrangement of Mozart’s Horn Quintet for the same line-up.

Playing both works on the same program is demanding for a horn player. Nicolas Fleury has lived in Australia since 2019. He studied in his native France, undertook postgraduate tuition in London, and spent a decade as a soloist and Principal with orchestras throughout the world.
