for horn, oboe, violin and continuo

Andante  [0'57]

Allegro  [2'08]

It seems likely that the Quartet in F major for horn, oboe, violin and continuo might have been inspired by similar works by Stölzel; the Hofkapelle library in Dresden includes a set of eight such works (copied in pairs). It might seem strange to combine a horn with oboe and violin, but in fact the natural horn was renowned as much for the suave quality of its sound as for its ability to carry across the hunting field.
