    "Horn Quartet Number Five"

    "French" Horn Lovers, (It's not really French, you know.)

    I wrote "Horn Quartet Number Five"this morning.

    I love the majestic sound of the horn. There's nothing quite like it.

    Regards,

    I like this. French horn is one of my favorite instruments. GPO french horns sound very good to me. Now I want to write a horn quartet. You are something else, writing all of this in one morning. Sheese!!! Anyway, as usual, thanks for posting.

    My pleasure, Mr. Jay. Thanks to you for listening. (Actually, it required about an hour.)

    My best to Miss Kate.

    As a former horn player I did enjoy this one. I see John Williams wrote a horn quartet piece for one of the Harry Potter movies.

    Yours was much better.

    One thing though was that the volume on this one is a little low. Your files are always right up there so I thought I would mention it.

    Thanks, Mr. Phil. The low volume happened during the conversion to mp3. I don't know the reason.

    Hey Larry, I digged that piece. I'm not at all experienced with this kind of music, so take it with a grain of salt, but in a way it seemed kinda 'one level' all throughout. Almost as if you wrote this in Sibelius or something and exported it without doing too much with the velocity/accentuation options of GPO.

    I hope you don't mind me whining about it, but harmonically and melodically this piece truly is good and it seems a shame that you don't really get everything out of it using the dynamic capabilities of these instruments.

    Anyway, good work nevertheless.

    It is exactly as I wish it to be! Sounds just right to my old ears. I wouldn't change a thing. Period. Exclamation point.

    Nevertheless, thank you for your comments.

    Gosh, you've been busy while I had my back
    turned for a few days... lol.

    This piece is, to my ear, surprisingly unAlexanderian
    in many ways... and quite handsome... there's
    a reflective, faintly melancholic aura to it that
    suits the horns beautifully.

    Although it seems more preludial in its hymn-like
    architecture and demeanor, I could see where
    this would work wonderfully in a suite quartet.

    Strong, moving work, Larry... almost Brucknerian
    in its quiet strength. I hope you'll go further in
    this style.
