    Gold & Silk


    paul taylor orCHestra presents music for horn and strings from Russia,  America, England with Arkady Shilkloper soloist. Hailing from Moscow, Shilkloper is acknowledged to be one of the world’s best jazz horn players, and his performances on almost any horn, including Alphorn, are unrivaled. As composer, he combines classic and folk elements with funky grooves.


    «Gold & Silk» is virtuoso and beautiful string music by renowned composers Ellen Taafe Zwilich, Michael Nyman and  Skriabin becoming a sound brocade with Arkady Shilkloper's horn. Arkady's suite of original works, from soulful to hypervirtuosic and funny, are prefaced by the romantic Prelude by V. Gorskij. The program rocks on with arrangements by master composer hornplayers Lee Bracegirdle (USA/AUS), and Kazimierz Machala (POL/USA)


    "Arkady Shilkloper goes places that horn players aren't supposed to go without a net, map, seat belt, crash helmet, overhead air support, and a note from their mothers. And he does so with extraordinary ease and musicality. I think maybe nobody ever told him "Jazz playing on horn is very difficult, and probably not natural or perhaps the phrase does not translate into Russian. I'd walk a camel a mile to hear this guy."( 

    Jeffrey Agrell Associate Professor of Horn at the University of Iowa School of Music)
