  1. Very nice! I wouldn’t have thought there would be a composition for this sort of ensemble. Did you transcribe the horn part to be in a more useful key for the player?

    1. Thanks Steve. No, the composer was a horn player (in Manheim), and so it’s originally written for this instrumentation. No transcription was involved. I know of at least 4 trios by Dickhut for this combination of instruments.


      1. Thanks for the info! I looked at IMSLP and saw “Corno in D” but I was looking at the score for the wrong piece. I now see that this one has horn in F. I guess D is a common thing to have to transpose for F horn though… must have been because of different instruments in the past. Learned something new!
