Abstract

In August, 2015, the Central Washington University Horn Ensemble will perform at the 2015 International Horn Symposium in Los Angeles, California. The program we will present explores the history of music written for horn ensembles by playing music that was commissioned for famous ensembles through the years. The centerpiece for this particular performance is Variations on a Five-Note Theme by Russell Garcia. Garcia’s seminal work for horn ensemble was commissioned by the Los Angeles Horn Club and, in the process of preparing the piece for performance, we have studied the group’s performing practices, collected discography, and history. Our performance at SOURCE will serve as a good opportunity for an initial performance reflecting our collected research in anticipation of the symposium performance.
