Stephen Stirling - French Horn

I first heard him play on Classic FM (yes, I listen to such posh music). It appears it's his recording of all Mozart's Horn Concertos, including the recently reconstructed "No 5 in E flat", has just been released by BMG on the Classic FM "Full works" label.

Some highlights of this amazing dude:
He is a professor of horn at Trinity College of Music in London and a regular contributor of articles about music making to The Horn Magazine (1998, 1999, 2001).

He performed on BBCTV and Radio 3, and appeared with orchestras such as the Academy of St Martin in the Fields, the City of London Sinfonia and the Chamber Orchestra of Europe under the batons of Richard Hickox, Sir Neville Marriner, Heinz Holliger and Ivan Fischer.

Best part is he publish some recording samples of his recordings on his website.
