About French Horns

In classical music, horns have long been associated with hunting, and the horn’s mellow, calming tone often evokes pastoral countryside. It is an instrument with a long classical history, stretching back to the Baroque era and Bach’s Brandenburg Concerto, right through to their powerful role in the massive romantic Symphony by Gustav Mahler. Horns also feature in brass quintets, brass bands, concert bands and military bands.
