Clip from Rondo of K495 (the cadenza)

This is a little cadenza I composed for the Rondo of Concerto K495.

 

Thanks to Armin Terzer for editing and YouTube-ing this clip for me.

The whole recording is available on:

From the CD’s booklet notes:
“In attempting to escape from the instrument’s constant pull towards E flat major, I have tried to stretch its scant chromatic capabilities as far as practically possible (in particular by using diminished harmonies) while attempting to keep within the spirit of Mozart’s horn-writing and what is known of his cadenza style. I can only apologize to the ghost of Mozart for any musical crimes I may have committed. In my defence (and in that of horn players everywhere), if a cadenza is indicated by Mozart we are obliged to do at least something.”
