- Morceau de Concert is a very virtuosic solo piece written in 1880 in France, following
the tradition of new and challenging pieces, like Villanelle by Paul Dukas, for the faculty of the Paris Conservatoire. The piece begins with a theme, followed by several variations demonstrative of the player's varied technique. The conclusion of the work is a technically demanding passage, truly showcasing the player's aptitude.
Vocalise-Waltz was written for Trio Arundel in the May, 1996. The work is in two
sections - a flowing, jazz-inspired rhapsody followed by a very fast, cascading waltz. The work is dedicated with great admiration and affection to Cynthia Carr, hornist with Trio Arundel.
Lev Kogan was an Israeli composer who immigrated to Israel from Moscow in 1972, and lived in Jaffa for nearly thirty years. Kogan is especially recognized for his contributions to music education and the Yiddish song. His “Nigunim” Hassidic Tunes was composed in 1979 and first performed by the celebrated Israeli hornist Meir Rimon in Tel Aviv in 1981.

John Boda was for over 50 years a professor of composition at Florida State University. He was a highly prolific composer and one of the more influential composition teachers in America. His Sonatina was written in 1969 and is in three connecting yet contrasting sections featuring driving rhythms, close harmonies, and moments of cadenza-like free time.
Alexander Borodin and Alexander Glazunov were Russian composers of the early and late Romantic period, respectively. Glazunov's Reveries is sweeping and melancholic work written shortly after his exposure to the highly virtuosic horn writing in Wagner's Ring Cycle.
Borodin’s Serenade, a bright and playful tune, is part of his Petite Suite, which consists of five pieces. Both pieces' heavily flatted sonorities and contrasting styles make them a perfect pair.
Episodes is a set of contrasting musical chapters that takes the listener through a passage of time and experience. The seven distinct movements end with cyclical closure, creating an encapsulated narrative that is a sum of its parts.
