New Music for Horn

During the past few years, I have composed over an hour of music for horn.
I recently recorded several of these pieces (along with pianist Charlie Magnone and hornist Zachary Morgan).

Hard copies of all pieces (except "Are They Ill-Tempered?") are available as well, though PDFs are recommended and are much cheaper.
Prices for hard copies include shipping to the continental United States.  If you are outside the continental US, please order PDFs.
