While I was researching for more horn quartet groups to write for a future post, I suddenly think of few groups that I know back when I was younger. One of that is Transatlantic Horn Quartet.
The group was found in 1998 by two prominent horn players from the UK and another two from the USA. Those are
- Richard Watkins - former Principal horn of Philharmonia Orchestra and Horn Professor at the Royal Academy of Music, UK
- Michael Thompson - former Principal horn of Philharmonia Orchestra and Horn Professor at the Royal Academy of Music, UK
- David Ohanian - former Empire Brass and Canadian Brass, and Horn Professor at Boston Conservatory of Music.
- Charles 'Skip' Snead - Horn Professor at The University of Alabama School of Music.
- Abel Pereira - Principal horn of National Symphony Orchestra (USA)
- Jeff Nelsen - Horn Professor at Indiana University and former Canadian Brass
- Leslie Norton - Principal Horn of Nashville Symphony Orchestra and Horn Professor at Vanderbilt University
Even though members have changed, I am glad to see them back and I hope to hear more of them!
