Ruth Gipps dedicated the Horn Concerto to her son, Lance Baker, who gave the first performance in the Duke''s Hall (Guildhall School of Music) in 1969 with her London Repertoire Orchestra. The concerto is in the Romantic tradition, though with a basically classical-sized orchestra (with three horns and a little percussion). The first movement ''Con Moto'' is broadly diatonic, with many unexpected side-shifts to unrelated keys and much use of syncopation. The cadenza builds tonal structures using arpeggios and exploits the whole range of the instrument. The Scherzo is in traditional ternary form, mainly in 7/8 time and the horn and orchestra interact in chamber music style. The Finale, ''Allegro Ritmico'' has a busy chattering theme passed between the soloist and the orchestra. A central slower section in which the muted horn duets with the celeste creates a unique sound-world, before the final spirited conclusion.
An A4 study score is available to purchase (E737)
Orchestral material is available to hire from: sales@juneemersonwindmusic.com

Thank you for your assistance, finally, I was able to get the music sheet of the beautiful Gipp’s concerto. And the staff was very kind.
This concerto is very difficult, keys move between F and E. But passages are very poetic. Especially, the treatment of high notes are very effective. It’s worth playing!

This arrival of this excellent edition provided just the incentive to get to know a work, of which I had known no more than that it is "out there". The technical details of the writing - not least the changes of transposition - are of particular interest.

Music arrived quickly and was as advertised - was suprised to find the sheet music sometimes written for Horn in F and sometimes written for Horn in E. A very enjoyable piece.
