These high horn studies are designed to add a new dimension of technical challenge and musical reward for the horn player. They are carefully constructed to expand all of a playerís capabilities while relying on a melodic and traditional sense of composition. The altissimo register of the horn should be a natural extension of a playerís solid ease in the middle range. The tempo markings are exact and should be carefully observed. All the double bars are intended as points of rest if desired. The studies are based on the works for clarinet of Cyrille Rose (1830-1902), important teacher and author of pedagical material still widely in use today.
