A guide to solo horn music: programming a recital
This document provides a diverse list of appropriate solo horn repertoire with a formulaic approach to programming solo recitals; as a resource, it will provide horn players of all levels with more independence and more options when planning recitals. The formula will outline various formats for a recital, incorporating a system of categorizing the works based on guidelines that include length, style, movements, technical features, and the ensemble required. The categories provide consistent, measurable, and reliable guidelines which teachers, students, and performers can use to make informed decisions. An overview of important historical, stylistic, technical, and pedagogical information for each work will aid in repertoire choice and in performance, while information on how and where to obtain scores and recordings will facilitate the process. A table of works, organized by composer, is included for easy access to information.
