Recorded by DANIEL SCHNYDER & The Modern Art Septet on SECRET COSMOS
Enja: ENJ-5055 / Recorded in 1987
French Horn in F
Starting at a slow tempo, with most of the harmonies obscured within the complex contrapuntal structure, this piece has a very contemporary, classical-sounding introduction, with a recognizable cadence or other conventional harmonic device peeking through the dense texture only occasionally. It then moves into an uptempo feel that requires the musicians to swing while maintaining precise execution of the complex figures. It also maintains its dense harmonic texture in the uptempo section. Overall, this is a real challenge for classical and jazz-oriented players alike.
SOLOS: There are soprano sax and flute solos over fast-moving, complex changes.
