John Frith: Horn Trio

Books | Brass Instruments, Violin, Piano Accompaniment

Composer: John Frith
Format: Sheet Music | Instrumental Album

“I first learned of the ‘Horn Trio’ by Johannes Brahms while still a student at Dartington College of Arts and it had a profound effect on me when I heard it performed by Alan Civil, Hugh Bean and David Parkhouse at a concert in Plymouth in 1967. As a novice Horn player and composer I dreamt of being able to join Lennox Berkeley and the many other composers inspired by these luscious musical sonorities and this work of great genius by Brahms. Now in my late sixties I feel ready to tackle this project and I am delighted that the piece has now been published. The writing is, I hope, idiomatic and accessible giving the performer ample opportunity for generous and expressive playing within a proudly English musical landscape. Within these four movements I have tried to create a work of beauty reflecting something of the world about us with a dash of fire reserved for the final rondo.” - John Frith
