The Suite for 4 Horns was composed for the Geneva Horn Quartet in 1953. It consists of four movements: 1. Prelude (calm), 2. Allegro non troppo (very rhythmic), 3. Lento (peaceful poem) and 4. Allegro con spirito (Gigue in 9/8). The composer's primary inspiration was the poetic character of the horn; Movement 1 and 3 are especially marked by the sweet and calm song of the instrument. Movements 2 and 4 are in a completely different spirit; the music is strong and rhythmic or quick and spirite.
