Leading British natural horn player Anneke Scott will perform in Hamilton tomorrow night as the featured soloist in NZBarok's new show.

In the second programme of the NZBarok 2014 season, The Natural Horn, Scott will perform the New Zealand premiere of three classic works played on period instruments, with a programme featuring Mozart's Horn Concerto No. 4 in E flat and his Symphony 29, as well as Haydn's Symphony 44.

The concert will mark the first time the three works have been performed by a New Zealand orchestra on baroque instruments.

Since graduating from London's Royal Academy of Music, Scott has found herself in great demand as a natural horn player. She is currently principal horn of Sir John Eliot Gardiner's Orchestre Révolutionnaire et Romantique and The English Baroque Soloists, Harry Christopher's The Sixteen, Fabio Biondi's Europa Galante, Les Ambassadeurs, Irish Baroque Orchestra, Dunedin Consort and Players, The King's Consort and the Avison Ensemble.

She earned glowing praise from leading Ukranian/Irish violinist Pavlo Beznosiuk, who said: "On an instrument which is perilous at the best of times her technique is such that one is aware only of intellect, musicianship and a glorious pallet of sound."

NZBarok musical director Graham McPhail said the orchestra had been extremely lucky to secure Scott.

"She is highly regarded internationally and we are looking forward to working with her."
