Anneke receives the International Horn Society’s Punto Award, 2019.

Anneke writes: “Thank you so much to the International Horn Society who bestowed upon me, along with my dear friends and colleagues Jeroen Billiet and Claude Maury, the prestigious Punto Award for 2019.

“The highly successful IHS51 - Moving Horns festival showed just how varied, versatile and active the international horn scene currently is. There is so much for the extended horn community to be excited about! Therefore to be selected for this award really is a big honour.

To be chosen along my dear teacher Claude Maury is very touching. Claude has been a constant inspiration to me from my early days as a natural horn enthusiast when I learnt about his playing through his wonderful recordings (hearing his playing on the Herreweghe/Ghent Collegium Vocale Bach Missa brevis in F major, BWV 233 recording in the late 1990s was eyeopening - the moment when I thought "oh, I want to do that!"), through years of study with him and now as colleagues. I keep on telling Claude that everything I've done is "his fault" and he has never been anything other than generous, supportive, thorough and exacting. A perfect combination of attributes.

And to have been chosen along the indefatigable Jeroen Billiet, one of the masterminds of this most impressive and diverse of festivals, IHS51 - Moving Horns is a huge privilege. At the festival Jeroen kindly pinpointed the length of time we've known one another as being "since the time when the dinosaurs were talking", which in layman's terms is the late 1990s when we were both students. We are more or less exact contemporaries and our camaraderie and friendship over the years has been very important to me. With each of us combining performing, teaching and research careers - Jeroen has always been there with wise advice and often thoughts on the long view. I'm sure he's got an opinion on how that's down to our individual Capricorn and Taurus characteristics (;-) ), but mild teasing aside, I'm so very proud of what he has achieved and to have been selected for this award along with him.

Launch of Mozart: Stolen Beauties disc with Ironwood Chamber Ensemble on ABC Classics

Mozart Stolen Beauties cover.jpg

Mozart left to horn players a lasting legacy of iconic works. Taking one of his most memorable works - Mozart's Quintet in E flat K.447 - Anneke Scott and Ironwood illustrate the various ways in which Mozart’s works have been “appropriated” for the horn, or, in one case how Mozart “appropriated” a work for himself. Through repertoire by Mozart, Michael Haydn, Giovanni Punto and others the musicians explore the golden age of the virtuosic hand horn and the early experimental days of the valve horn. 

Anneke Scott - natural and piston horns

Alice Evans & Julia Fredersdorff - violins
Nicole Forsyth & Heather Lloyd - violas
Daniel Yeadon - cello
Neal Peres Da Costa - fortepiano

The launch of Plumstead Peculiar Press

As part of her recent succesful Kickstarter campaign Anneke produced and published a number of works by the French composer and virtuoso horn player Jacques-François Gallay. Over the last few years Anneke has ammased a library of her own editions of works for horn. Many of the original sources of these works have been hidden away in libraries and she initially produced these editions for her own performances. Seeing the interest that the horn players around the world have had in the editions produced for the Kickstarter campaign it seemed that there was indeed an appetite for new publications of these "peculiar" works and Plumstead Peculiar Press (www.plumstead-peculiars.com) was founded.


"Scott is a wonderfully expressive and agile horn player. She goes for, and gets, maximum emotional impact in each piece. Sometimes she is smooth, sometimes raucous, sometimes singing softly, sometimes dancing with bounce, but she is always musically engaged." The Horn Call July 2014
