…“Not only is her tone as large, liquid, and sensuous as they come, but she plays with a finesse, agility, and all-encompassing musical intelligence that make her one of the most completely satisfying musicians of our time”.

… “This collection of excellent works played wonderfully by Carolyn Hove illustrates what a fantastic sound can be produced in the hands of a very skilled player performing works by composers who truly understand the nature of the horn.”  Source: Audiophile Audition - August 2011

… “From start to finish, the program is imaginative and impressive; but most important, her playing is exemplary and enjoyable. Few come close to the sound, tone, control, and technique that she has on the English horn.”  Source: American Record Guide - November/December 2011

…“The entire CD shows both tasteful artistry and outstanding technical skill and is an excellent example of superb English horn playing.”  Source: The Instrumentalist - October 2011

…“In short, to hear this instrument played as really no one else plays it these days, look no further than here.”  Source: Classical KUSC Program Guide - October 2011

…“A wonderful and “Eclectic” solo recital, played beautifully!”  Source: Audiophile Audition - August 2011

…“Carolyn Hove and Vicki Ray have accomplished something wonderful together – making great music sound like it should.  This is worth finding whatever the price.”  Source:  American Record Guide - November/December 2011

“…I heartily recommend this disc to any fan of the English horn and anyone who simply admires good wind music played exceptionally well!”   Source: Audiophile Audition - August 2011

Carolyn Hove, English Horn

Disquieted Souls (2009) was commissioned by Carolyn Hove, English horn soloist of the LA Philharmonic for EH solo, string quintet and woodwind quintet. It was recorded with Carolyn Hove, and CUBE in June 2010.

Disquieted Souls is inspired by pre-Christian Celtic legends of goddesses and the supernatural. The piece starts with the suggestion of a Celtic dance tune and then the music enters the realm of the supernatural with the English horn playing mysterious melodies evoking the twilight of the dense forest. In the middle section the English horn sings in a world that is inhabited by sprites and faeries. The last part of the piece explores deep sadness and lost love, the essence of many ancient Celtic myths.

Sibelius - Los Angeles Philharmonic - Esa-Pekka Salonen

Works by Jean Sibelius

Lemminkäinen Legends, Op. 22 , Mvt 3, "The Swan Of Tuonela"

En Saga, Op. 9

"The Swan of Tuonela" featuring Ms. Carolyn Hove, Esa-Pekka Salonen & the Los Angeles Philharmonic

"When Esa-Pekka Salonen first stepped onto the public stage as a bright young conductor from Finland, almost everyone agreed that his specialty would always be the interpretation of his fellow countryman, Jean Sibelius. Now, many years later, Salonen is at the peak of the master conductors of today, having proved himself a master of Stravinsky, Bartok, Schoenberg, Mahler, Bruckner, Debussy, Wagner, Lutoslawski, Haydn, Adams and all new music, et cetera. And so it is a welcome fact that he still also remains one of the great Sibelius conductors of our time.

This recording made in 1992 is one of his finest from that period, conducting his own Los Angeles Philharmonic with passion, clarity, and an obvious intense communication with his players. The shimmering ecstasy of Sibelius' writing in the excerpt from the Lemminkäinen Legend (No. 3) is unsurpassed: The Swan Of Tuonela. A finer interpretive stance and gorgeous orchestral playing would be difficult to find in the recording catalogue. It simply works wonders. Highly Recommended on every level."
