Gustav Mahler:
Songs of a Wayfarer for Horn & Piano

Back to Horn Solo Index

Mahler's song cycle concerning the many emotions surrounding unrequited love makes a beautiful addition to a horn recital. The wide range of expression in the songs creates a real challenge to the player's musicianship, while also providing a chance to display the rich singing sound of the instrument.
