Horn Player's Audition Handbook

Horn Player's Audition Handbook edited by Arthur LaBar. For Horn. Brass - French Horn Method or Collection. Book. 84 pages. Published by Alfred Music (AP.EL03281).

ISBN 0769227589.

The Horn Player's Audition Handbook provides a handy, one-volume reference guide to the literature, especially for those players preparing for an imminent auditions, containing, as it does, the repertoire most frequently asked for by American orchestras. Since audition lists almost always include a few "non-standard" works, the well-versed student will also want to have employed the more comprehensive collections of excerpts in the course of his/her general preparation for an orchestral career. However, the advantages of having the most "important" audition material under one cover will readily be appreciated and makes this book a welcome addition to the literature.

    Spokane, WA
    Difficulty Level:
  • January 06, 2013 Many pros and cons

    As a pre-professional hornist, I purchased the book because it contains many excerpts that are missing from other such books, including works of Strauss, Mahler, Ravel, Shostakovich and Stravinsky. Since purchasing it, I have found things both to like and dislike about it. Pros: excellent variety of literature; chart...

    in the back showing frequency of requests for excerpts at auditions; glossary of French/German words/phrases; metronome markings Cons: missing measure/rehearsal numbers; chunks of several excerpts missing (Beethoven 7, Don Quixote); some awkward page turns (Ein Heldenleben, Das Rheingold); vital excerpts missing (Siegfried long call, Bach B Minor Mass). I'd say this is a good starting point, but may need to be supplemented by another similar book, like Daren Robbins' Orchestral Horn Excerpts (hornexcerpts.org) or the Mel Bay Anthology of French Horn Music. Also is the Thompson Edition, which is quite comprehensive, and various "complete horn parts" CDs or books.

    Great book, but it is missing a very important piece of audition music, Bach's B Minor mass.
