German Music for Horn and Strings is the second CD from the Jacobs School of Music that focuses on the natural horn. Featuring performances by Jacobs School horn professor Richard Seraphinoff, the recording is a collaboration with the Genessee Early Music Society (GEMS) in Rochester, N.Y.. The group's first CD "Cornucopia" focused on music for horn and strings from the 19th century French repertoire. This companion CD features the German repertoire of the late 18th century including works by W. A. Mozart, Johan Andreas Amon, J. Michael Haydn, Carl Stamitz, and Giovanni Punto.
