Plattsburgh, NY, Feb 02, 2011 — A rare brass instrument will be a part of a concert at SUNY Plattsburgh Friday night. SUNY Plattsburgh's Ann Ellsworth and her guests will take the stage for a faculty recital that will feature music by Mozart, Wagenseil, Eberlin and others. Ellsworth owns one of only eight soprano horns in the world. It's a rare instrument made by German horn maker Alexander Mainz. She told Todd Moe that it was designed specifically for playing the extremely high register found in certain Bach cantatas.
