This light, lively piece by ugne Bozza recalls not only the horn’s history as a hunting instrument, but also his earlier work En Forêt.  The work is comprised of five sections, each based on the opening melody.  The piece uses 6/8, 9/8, 4/4, 2/4, and 3/4 time signatures, stopped horn, and muted horn.  It is significantly less challenging than Bozza’s other wors for horn in terms of range, technique, and rhythm.  It is suitable for an advanced middle school or a young high school student and would be a good introductory piece for reading 6/8 meter and playing stopped horn.
