30 Etudes for Stopped Horn

Robert Ward (composer)


  • Horn in F
Methods and Studies
“Stopped horn is one of the coloristic effects that we have in our 'horn toolbox' that separates us from the other instruments in the brass family. The ability to change tone color instantly has been exploited by countless composers, especially the late Romantics, Impressionists and the more recent. The link to natural horn technique is self-evident. But there are very few exercises devoted to developing this skill. This collection of 30 Etudes for Stopped Horn presents a variety of challenges for the medium to advanced player. I have included different styles from simple melodies to unmeasured quasi-cadenza, to swing and 12-tone, high and low register passages, and a variety of notations that are commonly used”
-Robert Ward, San Francisco Symphony Principal Horn
