Soliloquy for Horn and Strings (Full Score and Parts) (4:49)
Horn and String Orchestra
I began with the idea fixed that music is as simple as a single note beautifully played on an instrument. Then I thought of the Horn, and then to decide ‘Yes, but what register?’ Showing all of the Horn’s wonderfully contrasting registers and functions in a fairly short space of time I thought would be a revelation to many listeners. Next thought ‘what would be the ideal background?’ “Strings” was the answer. The rest flowed from those thoughts. The Premier performance was in Jordan Hall, Boston, Kevin Owen, Horn soloist with the Boston Chamber Orchestra, David Feltner conductor.
