Solo for Horn

My first composition for the 2010 UWRF Beginning Composition class. The assignment is writing a solo for a monophonic instrument. I chose the French Horn. The form is ABA`. In retrospect, the beginning theme sounds like a mix between the Horn solo in the final movement of Gustav Mahler’s Symphony No. 2 and the Eintritt in den Wald from Richard Strauss’s Eine Alpensinfonie. Of course that was not intended, but it sounds awesome.
