Zen Vision MAlphorn, op. 15 no. 3 for Soprano, Horn & PianoRichard Strauss, composer; Barry Tuckwell, horn; Marie McLaughlin, soprano – Strauss: Horn Music
[5:13] * * *

One of his earliest horn compositions – Strauss was only 14 years old when he composed this piece for his father, who played the horn! – Alphorn is a beautifully lyrical piece that includes some segments that still make me stop whatever I’m doing, to float away into the high mountain mists on the clear aurelian notes Tuckwell gives this simple little number.
