Abstract/Summary/Outline:

The dissertation addresses the significance of how a command of the natural horn can aid performance on its modern, valve counterpart. Building on research already conducted on the topic, the practice-led project assesses the artistic merits of utilising natural horn techniques in performances on the valve horn. The exegesis analyses aesthetic decisions made in the recitals – here disposed as two CD recordings – and assesses the necessity or otherwise of valve horn players developing a command of the natural horn.
