A rare collection of four live performances recorded around the world, this unique recording spans horn player John Cerminaro’s career over the past five decades, and showcases his innate musicality and supreme technical command.

Widely acknowledged as one of the greatest horn players of our time, John Cerminaro is currently Principal Horn with the Seattle Symphony, a post he has held since 1995. In an illustrious career spanning five decades, he has also held principal horn positions with the New York Philharmonic, Los Angeles Philharmonic and the Aspen Festival Orchestra. Mr. Cerminaro has guested as a principal with numerous orchestras across the country, including the Dallas Symphony, Milwaukee Symphony, and Houston Symphony, to name a few, and has performed in music festivals throughout the United States, Europe and Asia.

His discography is varied, and includes four solo recordings for Crystal Records, an acclaimed CD of the four Mozart Horn Concertos with conductor Gerard Schwarz and the Seattle Symphony (also Crystal Records) as well as the John Williams’ score for NBC’s Nightly News.
Respected for his teaching methods as well as his performance skills, John Cerminaro has been a member of the faculty at The Juilliard School, the Aspen Music Festival, The California Institute of the Arts and was a Landsdowne Lecturer at Victoria College.

Charlie C-Note

Trust me, you're never going to hear it better!
Cerminaro's Gliere horn concerto will knock your sox off. His Mozart concerto will break your heart. Nobody plays like the kid, nobody. His CD is all live concerts, but sounds perfect, like they made it in a recording studio. Hey, don't believe me. Your loss. Or trust me, and get the CD for the musical thrill of a life time.


I love this cd! It is fantastic!!

Kit Stycket

Superb musicianship and incredible technique
The Gliere with the Aspen Festival Orchestra brought back memories from summers spent there as a student. I think Mr. Cerminaro's sound and musicianship is something that horn players will appreciate. I have never heard such an incredible live recording-nor have I heard one played better, by anyone, in the last 50 years.

Tony Halstead

A totally stunning and memorable CD
It's difficult not to get too 'emotional' but this is an utterly awesome CD that I will always treasure for its wonderful and totally involving performances by that 'magician of the horn' John Cerminaro.

Joel Pereira - Horn Accessories Intl

Best, nothing else but that!! Thanks, John.
My horn collection is complete now. Fantastic, definitive performances without the studio tricks!!

Andrew Pelletier

One of the very few brave hornists active today!
John Cerminaro has been at the pinnacle of horn artistry for decades and this CD proves why. No splicing for every flaw, no overdubbing to correct poor technique, no re-taking sections to create a player who does not exist. Here is the artist as he really is: live, unedited and more stylish and breath-taking than you could possibly imagine! A must for all MUSICIANS!

Awesome Gliere and Amram concertos!!!!
Really remarkable Gliere concerto, and the Amram was truly awesome. First time we've heard it. Everything was just great, even the sounds of the audience coughing once in awhile to remind us it was a LIVE concert!
