It is a work that has long interested me; I featured it in my dissertation and also in a later article, “Crooks and the 19th-Century Horn,” The Horn Call 30, no. 1 (November, 1999), this article also being winner of the 2000 Harold Meek Memorial Award of the International Horn Society. (That article content is not easily accessed online at this time and I should go back and convert some of that text into new articles for Horn Matters).

Konzertstuck-snipI love this topic and still should go back and work over the Schumann text for Horn Matters. I could easily spend an entire semester on just the early valved horn. And we will stick with the early valved horn next week, with a focus on the late 19th century.
