Robert Schumann: Concert Piece For Four Horns And Orchestra Op.86 (Piano Reduction)

Books | French Horn (Quartet), Piano Accompaniment (Quartet)

Publisher: Henle Verlag
Composer: Robert Schumann
Format: Sheet Music | Instrumental Album

Composed in 1849, Robert Schumann's Concert Piece For Four Horns And Orchestra Op.86 is still considered a romantic work for Horn par excellence and a benchmark for all soloists.

'Something quite curious, I believe' – it was thus that Schumann described his Concert Piece For Four Horns And Orchestra in a letter, and he did indeed break new ground with this work as far as the scoring and treatment of the instruments was concerned.

At the time in which the work was composed the French horn was still fairly new, enabling players to play previously unheard-of runs and free modulations, a fact which Schumann made the most of, particularly with his scoring for four Horns.
