Anneke Scott

Anneke Scott

Scott’s command of the natural horn is breath-taking; her control, especially evident in rapid slurred passages, is a triumph over the nature of the instrument. Trills – accomplished on a natural horn solely by manipulation of the airstream and embouchure – are impeccable, and her intonation – so perilous on an unvented brass instrument confined to the overtone series – is flawless.


Anneke Scott’s playing is exquisite. Her tone quality, expertly executed ornamentations, and agile hand-stopping technique make these performances truly remarkable. The piano playing by Steven Devine is perfectly balanced to Scott’s horn and together they produce hair-raising dynamic contrasts and bombastic finishes
