Fabulous French Horn
Playing is an Art

Quality French horn playing is not an easy task. The instrument has a range of about three and a half octaves and its double horn version, pitched in F and Bb, is prominent in modern day use. The designer of this type of horn was Fritz Krupse.

Composers that have written concertos for this instrument include Mozart (he wrote four of them) and Hindemith. In terms of its place in the symphony orchestra, the horn became much more prominent in the nineteenth century, with composers like Strauss and Mahler increasing the amount of horns scored in some of their works.

One of the great modern horn players is Grammy nominated Barry Tuckwell, born in Australia in 1931. He has many quality recordings to his credit.
