Georges Barboteu, Gilbert Coursier, Michel Berges, Daniel Dubar

Georges Barboteu, Gilbert Coursier, Michel Berges, Daniel Dubar Georges Barboteu (1924 – 2006) was born in Algeria where his father was horn professor at the Conservatoire d’Algiers.  Beginning in 1948 he played in the French Orchestre National, Opéra-comique and Paris Opera.  From 1953 until 1961 Barboteu was a member of the Société des Concerts du Conservatoire. In 1967 he became principal horn of the Orchestre de Paris  until 1989.

He succeeded Jean Devémy as horn professor at the Paris Conservatoire from 1969 to 1989.

Barboteu’s legacy from the 1960’s includes pioneering recordings of many  Baroque concerti as well as Haydn’s Concerto for 2 Horns and Schumann’s Konzertstück reissued on this CD.

Gilbert Coursier, Barboteu’s colleague in the Opéra-comique and other orchestras was hornist of the famous  Quintette á vent Français, with Jean-Pierre Rampal, flute; Pierre Pierlot, oboe; Jacques Lancelot, clarinet; and Paul Hongne, bassoon.

The recordings presented here have been digitally  restored from original LP sources. The Schumann and Vivaldi were taken from new old stock, factory sealed discs.

The discs were first cleaned on a Keith Monks Mk II record-cleaning machine. They were played back on a Linn Sondek LP12 turntable with Linn Ittok arm and Monster Alpha Genesis 2000 moving coil cartridge through an AudioResearch SP11 Mk II tube preamplifier. A custom built quad-core computer and Diamond Cut Audio Restoration software were used in the digital conversion and restoration.
