Daniel Bourgue 1937-2023
The International Horn Society is deeply saddened to learn of the death of Honorary Member Daniel Bourgue (1937-2023). "Who must surely be the last representative of the old school of French playing," has been acclaimed as one of the finest soloists of his generation, praised for his virtuosity, his tone quality, and the elegance of purity of his style. We are grateful to him for his service on the IHS Advisory Council and for hosting the 1982 International Horn Symposium in Avignon, France.
