American composer, conductor, educator, jazz critic, horn virtuosoReview:
'This popular book was first published in 1962 and as a standard reference for the instrument it has proved of value to a whole generation of horn-players ... Schuller has greatly enlarged the repertoire list.'
Gary McPherson, International Journal of Music Education, Number 20, 1992
'this is no aimless stroll down memory lane; Schuller's practical common sense is as relevant today as it was in 1963. He is always thoughtful, but his approach is empirical rather than theoretical. He believes in technical orthodoxy, but in a sensible, pragmatic way. Schuller writes vividly,
drawing upon his own experience as a horn player, conductor and composer.'
Daivd Hoult, Music Education, Volume 10 - 1993
