Horn Duets

  • Buss, Howard

    Time Capsule

    20th Century (1996). Sonatina in 4 movements: Daybreak, Chorale, Rendezvous, Homeward Bound is both fun to play and listen to. Daybreak has a frolicking and optimistic character. Chorale breaks with the traditional structure of the chorale in that each phrase gets a measure longer. The harmonies of the second movement contain some spicy dissonances as well. Rendezvous, is in a lilting 6/8 and really "works up a lather" as it progresses to an exciting climax. Homeward Bound, begins with a fanfare-like passage that gives way to a spirited dance with an intriguing interplay between the 2 instruments.
