New CD with Amsterdam Sinfonietta
21 February 2013 – High acclaim for the new CD of Amsterdam Sinfonietta, featuring Jasper de Waal as the horn soloist in Benjamin Britten’s Serenade with tenor James Gilchrist. “Jasper de Waal responds to Britten’s technical trials with perfect aplomb, following happily in the footsteps of pioneering hornists such as Dennis Brain, Alan Civil and Barry Tuckwell. Together, Gilchrist and De Waal conjure up a marvellous, deeply contemplative and moving Serenade, certainly one to remember and treasure” (; “Jasper de Waal mirrors the work’s moods with sensitive horn playing” (Audiophile Audition); “sehnsüchtig versonnenen Hornklängen” (Crescendo).
