  3. Scherzo for Solo Horn (2020)
    $10.00

    COMPOSED FOR ANDREW BAIN

    One of the highlights of the summer of 2020 was the opportunity to participate in a series of internet-based Warm-Up Classes presented by Andrew Bain-Principal Hornist of the Los Angeles Philharmonic Orchestra and co-hosed by Rupal Bain-of their INVESTED MUSICIAN program. Impressed by Andrew's regular presentation of horn studies in a comfortable and friendly atmosphere, I was inspired to write this piece by the fact that he candidly discussed some of his own personal technical challenges in playing the horn. This Scherzo is dedicated to Andrew Bain, his ongoing artistry, inspiration, and good humor.

  9. Dreams of Casbah for Solo Natural Horn
    $8.00

    Fleeting images of a Middle Eastern bazaar appear in muted colors that fade in and out. The morning begins slowly, as merchants get ready for the day ahead. Somewhere in the distance the bazaar begins and the marketplace builds in activity and excitement. The market activity peaks and gradually subsides, and the aftermath gives way to the evening. The dreamer is finally transported away from the Casbah with memories of the day's excitement trailing behind.  -Jeffrey Snedeker, November 2016
