The Work

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.

Movements 2 and 4 are in a completely different spirit; the music is strong and rhythmic or quick and spirite.
