SKU: BWBE022 Category:


Adagio for 12 Horns was written for the CWU Horn Ensemble and premiered during the middle of the school year at its quarterly horn ensemble concert, but the first big performance was at the International Horn Society’s Symposium in Denver, CO in 2008. Sean Brown, the composer writes: ‘I absolutely love the concert key of Db major, and couldn’t resist writing a slow pretty piece in this key. I was so obsessed with harmony in this piece (which is really quite simple sometimes) that I didn’t make the piece too melodically prominent. There are moving lines, but other times there are just chorales. My goal of this piece is just to combine many elements into one beautiful collage.’


  • Horn in F 1-12
