Misc. Comments

The original version in E-flat major was written for the "Althorn". This brass instrument in Eb tuning, which was widespread in Germany between 1870 and 1918, especially in military bands, is now rarely found. In English brass bands this instrument (in England named "Alto Horn", in America named "Tenorhorn") is still partly to be found. A performance on a modern F-horn is possible, requires a quite experienced player because of the high pitches. The original version was first published in 2004 by the Swiss AMADEUS-Verlag (edited by Yvonne Morgan). This new Version in F major transposed by a whole note can now also be played well on the Fluegelhorn.
