Click to watch the concert

Helen Bishop showcases the basset horn in two works by composers of the classical era – the peerless Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, and his contemporary Johann Georg Heinrich Backofen. Part of the clarinet family, the basset horn has a beautiful mellow tone and is versatile as both a bass and melody instrument.
