London College of Music Grade 8 Exam Piece for Horn in F until further notice
A wonderfully evocative and atmospheric piece of night music, with its smooth figures built on fourths shared between horn and piano. The introduction of hand stopping and hand glissando (unique features of the French Horn) challenge the musical, technical and interpretive qualities of both the soloist and accompanist. This work was a Trinity College London Horn in F exam piece between 1998 and 2004, and an Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music (ABRSM) grade 8 exam piece for Horn in F between 1998 and 2012. It has been a London College of Music exam piece for Horn in F since 1994.
