    "Hornucopia"

    All,

    This is my "Hornucopia", a work for solo horn and small group.

    Instruments are from the GPO and Kontakt 3 sample libraries.

    Regards,

    Hi Larry,

    This is some Light-Hearted Larry at his best!

    I could almost see waving around a stein or two in a biergarten (with Gunther!), although it would have to be a pretty swanky one to match this piece. Excellent balance between soloist and the chamber group, and a great job on the rendering as well. You also pulled of the cadenza at the end quite realistically -- love the pedal tones! Great job, Larry!

    I am muchly obliged for the compliments, Mr. Danny. Thank you.

    I am trying to find a tutorial so that I can learn more about editing sampled instruments. There are some sounds in this work with which I am not happy.

    My best,

    Larry

    Some very nice horn work in this, Larry... and
    a well built Classic era sound to it. I liked the
    cadenza passages at the end -- as well as hitting
    the lowlands and pedaltones of the horn.

    Much enjoyed!

    Best,

    Larry:
    A real nice "period" piece. I will be curious to see the comments from French Horn players regarding some of the abrupt leaps to the altissimo register.

    This is a rewritten version that I posted. I simplified my original work quite a bit. In actuality, I emasculated my composition. Even a middle-school horn player should be able to play it now.

    Thanks for your input.

    Sir Larry:

    My apologies. I incorrectly assumed that you posted the one that you sent me. I don't agree that you emasculated this piece, because as it stands now, it is a very handsome addition to the French Horn literature. Quite playable by advanced players, there are still some testy moments, and something for the less advanced to ascribe to.
    Next time I promise to "look before I leap."

    No need for you to apologize. You didn't know that I had rewritten it after I initially sent it to you for your perusal.

    Thanks for the second listen.

    My best,

    Larry I really enjoyed this one, and I love the instrumentation, and the inventive cadenza at the end. So congratulations on this from the Emerald Isle!
