Sir Andrew Davis

Music Director and Principal Conductor, Lyric Opera of Chicago

Of all the principal horn players I’ve had the pleasure of working with in many orchestras over the years, few have come close to Jon Boen. His accuracy is remarkable, but this is but one in a long list of his qualities as a musician. His sensitivity to style, his command of a huge palette of tonal colours and the wonderful way in which he interacts with his colleagues in the pit make him one of the most rewarding artists with whom I have ever had the pleasure of working.
