Looking forward to performing Margaret Brouwer's
Sonata for horn and piano (1996) 
at the Northwest Horn Symposium 2019,
University of Montana, Missoula

This piece can be purchased here on the composer's website. Scroll down to "Chamber Music"

More about this work:   

Commissioned by The Horn Consortium Commissioning Group: Lisa Bontrager, Ellen Campbell, Nancy Cochran Black, Randall Faust, Jack Herrick, Patrick Hughes, Gregory Hustis, Johnny Pherigo, Jeffery Snedeker, Kristin Thelander, Virginia Thompson.

About the piece:

In two movements, "Hymn" is quiet, free and reflective. "Riding to Higher Clouds" is faster, mixing the unsettling with exciting. Brouwer seeks with this piece to make a turn away from atonality as the 20th century was coming to and end.

Her performance notes:

At the turn of a new century and after a  century of atonality, I am eager to find paths in new harmonic directions. The Sonata for Horn and Piano is representative of explorations of mine   toward a personal expression in that new direction. It is also a very personal expression of searching prompted by the deaths of two loved ones within a year's time. "Hymn," straightforward and melodic, expresses grief and faith. "Riding to Higher Clouds" deals with the complex struggle between the conflicting emotions of loss, hope, memories, and understanding. 
-Margaret Brouwer
