    I do not know Mr. Adler, although he lives a few miles from me. And I am embarrassed in that I only became familiar with this piece recently. It is written for horn alone. The first quarter of the work is an unmetered recitative, and while phrase markings and dynamics...

    are included, you will still have some of your own musical stylings to choose. The rest of the work is multimetered and not diatonic. The occasional high Bb and C, as well as some bass clef will be needed, but the piece does not spend much time in either extreme. This work, while a challenge to most, would be attainable and fun for an upperclassman in college, and above. (Mr. Adler includes the words "with a slight apology to Richard Strauss" at the bottom. You will smile as you realize the "slightly hidden" reference you are playing.)
