für Horn in F und Klavier
Einzelstimme für Horn in F
INTO THE HALL OF VALOR for horn and piano by Howard J. Buss was composed
during the winter of 2018 for the 50th Anniversary of the International Horn
Society. It was written for hornist Frank Lloyd and The United States Army
Field Band for their performance at the IHS Conference hosted by Ball State
University in Muncie, Indiana. This composition is a tribute to soldiers
recognized for great courage in the face of danger. The composer states,
About the time I learned that the U.S. Army Field Band would perform the
premier, I was reading about the Hall of Valor" located at the National
Infantry Museum in Columbus, Georgia. I was inspired to write a work as a
salute to those who have been recognized therein, as well as soldiers honored
at similar venues. The character of the music is heroic, majestic, and the
solo horn adds significantly to this.
