Two new horn quartets have been added to the IHS Online Music Sales.

Composer Keith Moss writes about his Quartet No. 1:

The Quartet No. 1 for four horns was written for South African horn player Neil Smit. Neil requested a commission from the International Horn Society for me to write a new work for inclusion in his Masters dissertation. His study explored what might be possible if the performer worked closely with the composer during the composition process. A rather simple, celebratory melody opens the first movement of the non-programmatic work which travels through various permutations. I attempted to make each part interesting in and of themselves giving each player a chance to reflect their technical proficiency. The second movement borrows material from a score I wrote for a short film. The continuous ostinato pattern underlies the movement creating the rhythmic and harmonic texture of the piece.  The final movement provides a rounding off so to speak of the first movement with a fanfare type of theme. A short chorale prepares the movement for its brassy conclusion.​

We also have a new arrangement of a Mozart favorite, Ricardo Matosinhos's horn quartet arrangement of Mozart’s famous Alleluia from Exsultate, Jubilate. It was premiered by the Trompas Lusas Horn Quartet in his own wedding.
