Charles Tibbetts beautifully performs Alec Wilder's music for horn and piano.

This recording fulfills a long-time dream of Charles Tibbetts to make the music of Alec Wilder for French horn more widely available. Tibbetts first met Alec Wilder and became acquainted with his music through his French horn teacher, the great John Barrows. In fact, some of the works on this recording were written for Barrows and Charles Tibbetts gave the world premiere performance of Suite Nr. 2 while a student of Barrows at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Charles Tibbetts studied with John Barrows until his death in 1974 and then left school to pursue a 46-year career in Europe where he played with the Philharmonia Hungarica, the Badische Staatstheater Nationaltheater Mannheim and the SWR Radio Orchestras. He returned to the U.S. in 2010 and is now active as a chamber musician in the Eau Claire area of Wisconsin.

Review:
“Tibbetts and his very able piano collaborators make music the way this music needs to be made: with complete conviction but also with moments of questioning, with a humor that never lasts long, with the freedom to do what seems right.” (American Record Guide)

“…a wonderful, essential entry in the pantheon of instrumental all-Wilder CDs. …sets a high bar for future performers.” (Friends of Alec Wilder Newsletter)

“…this has to be one of the most delightful CDs I’ve reviewed in a very long time, and I hope that Tibbetts sells out the pressing!” (Fanfare)
