Czech-American Horn Duo – Steven Gross and Jiri Havlik
“…these musicians…have found a happy stylistic middle ground wherein their sounds merge compatibly. …impressive feat!…Let’s hope that musicians and conductors will be inspired to program these works after hearing this excellent recording.” -The Horn Call
Steven Gross is a former member of the Atlanta Symphony, National Symphony, and the Santa Fe Opera Orchestra. His recent international solo appearances include the Orchester der Stadt Vöcklabruck in Austria, the Royal Academy of Music in London, the Moscow Conservatory, and the L’Abri International Arts Festival. His Carnegie Hall debut was described by the New York Concert Review as “offering some of the cleanest articulation and purest musicality … a listenable, bravura display of instrumental technique.” Jiri Havlik has been a member of the Czech Philharmonic Orchestra since 1979. He has won several prizes at international music competitions (Concertino Praga, The Prague Spring), as well as Special Award of the Czech Ministry of Culture for the composition and performance.
