Quartet (Horn in F)

Here is the 3rd and final piece in the collection of Viennese 'Forest Horn' pieces arranged for quartet from the St. Hubert Mass. This is a 'Chasse' or gallop through the forest in pursuit of fox, boar, stag, or whatever could be gainfully chased on horseback. In German and Austrian forests they do it with bigger horns and louder hornists!

With typical cantering rhythms, this kind of horn music is common in lots of Romantic orchestral music for many composers of the 19th century. As a horn player of several decades myself, I'd love to play these gems in a real forest - with beer and lunch to follow!

Which method of viewing music should I use?

Score Exchange has two methods to display previews of music: seView which uses regular html and javascipt and the Scorch plug-in from Avid which needs to be downloaded and installed onto your computer. Both have advantages and disadvantages:


seView, is the most compatible option. You should be able to view music on all modern web browsers including most mobile devices. Even if your device does not support javascript you should still be able to preview at least page one of the music.

You do not need to install any additional software to use seView.


Scorch is a free plug-in from Avid for displaying and printing music. It can also play the music that you're seeing. As modern web browsers are updated, Scorch is no longer compatible with many browsers. Scorch has never been compatible with mobile devices and some web browsers on Mac computers.

If your web browser does not install Scorch automatically, you can click here to download and install scorch manually.
