ARCO Soloist - Anneke Scott
Anneke Scott - Classical Horn
One of the leading period performers of her generation, Anneke Scott has been described as “one of the finest horn soloists” (Early Music Review). Anneke is the principal horn of many internationally renowned period instrument ensembles including Sir John Eliot Gardiner's Orchestre Révolutionnaire et Romantique and The English Baroque Soloists, ensemble Pygmalion, The Orchestra of the Sixteen, Dunedin Consort, The King’s Consort and Irish Baroque Orchestra.
Anneke has an extensive solo and chamber music career with recordings covering repertoire from the late 17th century through to contemporary compositions for the natural horn. Her recent solo recordings have included sonatas for horn and fortepiano with fortepianist Kathryn Cok (Challenge Classics, 2011) two volumes of chamber music and sonatas for wind instruments by Franz Danzi with ensembleF2 (Devine Music, 2013) and a disc with the Australian ensemble Ironwood exploring Mozart (ABC, 2015). She is a founder member of a number of chamber ensembles including Boxwood & Brass, The Prince Regent’s Band Syrinx and ensembleF2.
In 2010 Anneke was awarded a prestigious scholarship by the Gerard Finzi Trust which enabled her to investigate the work of Jacques-François Gallay. This resulted in a series of three discs: Preludes, Caprices, Fantaisie – Concerts Cachés – the solo works of Jacques-François Gallay’s Chamber Music for Natural horn ensemble (with Les Chevaliers de Saint Hubert) and Another Voice – Operatic Fantasias for horn released by Resonus Classics.
Anneke teaches historical horns at the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama and the University of Birmingham.
