A.J. Weidt / Arr. Glen Tuomaala
This was first performed by the Capital Horn Club of Washington, D.C. before the pandemic. They even sent me a video clip because they play horn and are awesome.
It’s a “cute” piece by one of my favorite “unknown” composers.
58 measures with a D.S. al Coda in the written key of C major.
It features the 3rd and 4th parts during the written F major Trio which is always nice. There’s some thick counterpoint in sections. The 1st horn has some challenging sixteenth note sections that will make you want to take the piece as slow as written; Andante.
Don’t take it too fast. Again, please do not practice or perform this piece at a tempo that feels fast. When you take this piece too fast you lose the whole style of the composition.
Don’t even take it “too fast” one time to see how terrible it sounds. It sounds awful when the tempo is too fast.
