John Golland (1942-1993) was an English musician. Having conducted various Brass Bands, he turned to composition full-time in 1970, and is now best known for works such as Sounds, Atmospheres, and Peace, as well as the incidental music for the BBC sitcom Dear Ladies. His Sonata For Horn And Piano (Op. 75) was written for Eb Tenor Horn and Piano in three movements: Allegro - Largo con trisezza – Allegretto amabile. It places virtuosic demands on both players, with curious and entertaining harmonic shifts. The poignant second movement was perhaps influenced by the long-term illness that eventually took him at too young an age, but it is sandwiched by two more lively and upbeat movements, which combine to make this a very enjoyable piece.
