Mozart excelled in all areas of composition, and his horn concertos - despite making up a very modest part of his total output - still reside among the finest achievements in the horn literature. The composer became acquainted with the mellow sonorities of the instrument from an early age, courtesy of his friend Joseph Leutgeb, who had been employed by the Hofkapelle in Salzburg. It was not until the remaining 10 years of his life, however, that Mozart finally set to work on his six concertos for horn.

Apart from K370b/371, which represents the composer's first attempt at writing a horn concerto and whose musical content differs markedly from that of the later ones - there are no 'hunting effects' in the rondo and the first movement is more declamatory in style than lyrical - it seems that all of the works were composed for Leutgeb, who was often a target of Mozart's mockery and teasing. Though the numerous points of harmonic, melodic and structural correspondence between the pieces suggest that Mozart did not take this genre especially seriously, the works still delight the listener for their gaiety, lightness of touch and warmth of orchestration. It is therefore a shame that only three of the six pieces remain complete, a resulting combination of more pressing work, lost manuscripts and the composer's untimely death. Jeurissen, the soloist on this recording and principal horn player of the Residentie Orchestra in The Hague, has taken it upon himself, based on analyses of similar passages in other works by Mozart, to work up all of these fragments into playable, practical versions. The results are laudable, and Jeurissen's passion for the works is evident from his highly accomplished, charismatic playing.
