Andante, Op posth.


It is perhaps no surprise that Richard Strauss’s writing for the horn represents some of the most idiomatic and challenging music for the instrument. Apart from his two celebrated concertos, Strauss’s tone poems and operas all heavily feature the horn. This short and beautiful Andante was written in 1888 to mark his parents’ silver wedding anniversary.
