Description

Camille Saint-Saëns composed his two Romances for Horn for two of the most respected French horn players of the time: Opus 67 in E major from 1866 is dedicated to Henri Chaussier; Opus 36 in F major from 1874 was written for Henri Garigue. Despite the illustrious recipients, they are not virtuosic showpieces but - as the term Romance suggests - short Songs without words that fully savor the typical romantic sound of the horn. Alongside the orchestral version, Saint-Saëns also prepared a piano accompaniment for chamber music performances. The first editions also had an alternative part for violoncello, on which this edition is based. Urtext edition with marked and unmarked string parts.
