Romances for Horn and Piano

Transcribed for Cello and Piano

Camille Saint-Saens composed his two Romances for Horn for two of the most respected French horn players of the time: Opus 67 in E major from 1866 is dedicated to Henri Chaussier; Opus 36 in F major from 1874 was written for Henri Garigue.

Despite the illustrious recipients, they are not virtuosic showpieces but (as the term Romance suggests) short songs without words that fully savor the typical romantic sound of the horn. Alongside the orchestral version, Saint-Saens also prepared a piano accompaniment for chamber music performances.

The first editions also had an alternative part for violoncello, on which this Urtext edition is based. Includes marked and unmarked string parts.

Edited by Dominik Rahmer. Fingering of the piano part by Klaus Schilde. With supplementary violoncello part marked by Claus Kanngiesser.
