Composed by Maxime Alphonse
(Jean Marie Maximin François Alphonse, known as Griet, 1880-1930), Two Hundred New Melodic And Gradual Studies - Vol. 2
is the second book of a set of six, containing 200 études for Horn with different levels of difficulty.
As a horn teacher who had also won the Premier Prix in Horn at the Paris Conservatoire, Maxime Alphonse
wrote this set progressively to ensure that the content was matching the needs for quality studies, starting with pieces for beginners, and evolving through the books to those for advance students.
Even though little information can be found about the composer, this set of six books is essential to play contemporary Horn and is widely used in the USA and in Italy. More
