Arranged wind quintet. Natural Horn in F Original tempo is 152: I have set it at 132 and it works well for wind quintet. Repeats are optional I am a horn player and made the decision to write the horn parts in my classical quintets,as far as possible, as Mozart or Beethoven would have written them.(in their sextets/octets etc)
So, the horn parts are written in the key of the piece Eb,G,D,C or whatever, and as far as possible I limit the notes to that of the natural horn (i.e. no valves).
In my opinion this gives a more authentic sound to the music.
Of course, sometimes, if the music needs a particular tenor part/melody or harmony, I will write it for horn. BUT AS FAR AS POSSIBLE, I write for natural horn.
I also provide F horn parts for those players who can’t/won’t transpose.
