4 Hörner / 4 Horns
Complete set of parts (Horn 1 - 4)
This album of 24 transcriptions for horn quartet brings unsung works to concert programs. Whether composed by a 17th century nun, 18th century aristocrat, 19th century virtuoso, or 20th century activist, the collection offers a choice sampling of the quality and variety of music created by women.
The three chapters in this volume offer sacred, occasional and concert music.Varied styles can be a blessing for the audience as well as the performers, so selections here span the eras of Maddalena Casulana (born ca. 1544) through Lili Boulanger (born 1893).
