March, April and May 2018 have seen a rapid increase in my own compositions. Spring seems to have put a spring into my musical step. Most importantly, I have written three completely new sonatas for unaccompanied French Horn. These works are each between 10 and 15 minutes long and can be played as complete sonatas or you can pick and choose movements for your recital programmes.

The French Horn is an unusual development for me, as is writing for unaccompanied instruments. I found the work challenging but, at the same time, refreshing and invigorating. The music has to be interesting and evocative without the hand-holding of an accompaniment. It has to contain rests for the player (whose stamina needs to be greateer than with an accompaniment because there are no opportunities for a 'breather').

I hope you enjoy them.

While on the subject of French horn, I have also written a new Horn Quartet. This three movement piece is intended to give all four players a 'run for their money'. Each part is challenging in its own way. In total I have released 23 new pieces and arrangements since the start of March.

The list of my new uploads for March to May is in the table below. Enjoy
