    Two of my works for "French" horn...

    Here are two of my original works for "French" horn.

    As all of you know, this instrument is not actually "French" in origin. In the hands of a professional player it has a large range.

    "Hornucopia"

    "Hornish Rhapsody"

    Regards,

    You have a nice horn in both pieces. The first one is blending the horn very nicely with your orchestration. The second would benefit some more work on the accompanying orchestra.
    What is the horn solo you are using, it sounds great and you are a good player too....

    What do you mean by "...some more work on the accompanying orchestra." (?)

    All of the instruments, including the horns, are sampled.

    I am sorry not to be clearer.
    Of course I do know that all of us are working with sampled sounds, including your F. horn and the orchestra with it. What I intended to say is that while the first posted Hornucopia is nicely arranged, you have a good balance between the solo and the accompanying orchestra, in the second posting the horn is overwhelming the piece too much. That is not intended to be critical, only a suggestion.
    We have agreed here so many times among many of us that as we are listening to our compositions, our brain is somehow compensating for faults we can not hear any more. That is the advantage of hearing from others listening with a fresh ear. I hope you will forgive me, the intention was to suggest something to better (IMHO) your nice composition.
    And a (delayed) Happy Birthday to you young man.

    Absolutely no reason to apologize, Mister Ted. I just needed to know what you meant so I could correct things.

    I am now eighty-three! Can you remember way back when you were that age? (Just kidding. )

    Thanks for the birthday wish. My best to you. Tengas buen dia, mi amigo.
