Details

The horns of Mozart’s and Beethoven’s era are charming and capricious instruments. Natural horns (the generic name of a large family of horns of the 17th-18th centuries with different design features) could only be played in certain keys, but so masterfully that now some horn parts in the music of Bach, Mozart, and Beethoven seem almost impossible to perform. Natural horns sounded softer and their timbre was richer than that of the modern ones, and their upper register in the hands of a skilled musician had a special sonority, agility, and purity.
