Committed to Opera

It was somewhat of a surreal experience to play the Horn quartet from the third act of Wagner‘s “Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg” with Tenor Klaus Florian Vogt, immediately after performing the 6 hour opera with Vogt as “Walther von Stolzig”, which is one of the main roles of the opera. We had a lot of fun- who knew he was principal horn in the Staatsoper Hamburg for 10 years!

The MET Opera Horns sound pretty good with Klaus’ help!
