Two surveys of European horn playing styles are now available under "Multimedia—>European Style Surveys." The first survey includes still photos and audio recordings that Pete Exline collected while on sabbatical in 1965. Pete drove all over Europe interviewing, recording, and photographing principal horn players from major orchestras performing the same five standard excerpts. He recently gave the material he collected to the IHS, and it has now been digitized.
Inspired by Pete's study, Website Manager Dan Phillips undertook another study in the fall of 2010 of 12 current European principal players, from many of the same orchestras. Still photos and basic biographical information for all 23 players can be accessed by all site visitors, and IHS members can enjoy streaming audio from the 1965 study and video from the 2010 version.
