Principal horn of the New Zealand Symphony Orchestra, Samuel Jacobs thrilled audiences in 2016 with his performance of Mozart’s Horn Concerto No. 4 with critics praising the performance as “Glorious” and “the epitome of breezy bonhomie”.
“The best part about this piece is that it’s the perfect format to display Mozart’s lyrical genius alongside his sense of humour,” says Jacobs.
The NZSO is delighted to provide a free streaming of Jacob’s 2016 performance to audiences at home.
