Literally
translating as grasshopper, a sauterelle was the name given to the removable
valve blocks added to natural horns during the late 19th century. Ensemble
Sauterelle sets out to discover and perform music written for the horn during
the later 19th and early 20th centuries, a particularly exciting time as
players moved from the natural horn to the various different systems of valves
in use around Europe. Formed by a new generation of period instrument
performers, members of the group have worked with a variety of the leading
period instrument ensembles, including the OAE, AAM, and the English Concert.

For
this concert, a quartet of horn players – playing both natural and valved
instruments – will be joined by a quartet of singers, to explore the wealth of
music written for this combination in Germany and Austria during the late 19th
century. Centred around Schumann’s Funf Gesange Op.137 and Schubert’s
Nachtgesang im Walde, the concert will also feature a variety of works by their
lesser know contemporaries.
