Algues by Bernard Andrés

Originally written for oboe(or flute) and (lever or pedal) harp, this works very well for horn and harp. It is not nearly as difficult as Chants and might be a good choice for students or if you don't have a lot of preparation time. This is always a crowd pleaser when we include it in our recitals. Be sure to download the free Andrés Notation Guide which explains the special notations used.

Chants d'arriere-saison for horn and harp by Bernard Andrés

Availability for this music seems to change without notice and it is no longer available from Camac Harps in France. Instead try Glissando in Germany (September 2014, listed under trio music, which it is not). Andrés released this in originally in manuscript. If you have one of those editions you have only the cello or horn part. It's been engraved and is now available from Camac's online catalog. As of 2012 the engraved version was full of errors. These have been reported to Camac but we do not know if the parts have been corrected and have no new information since the publication was placed with Glissando. If you need a copy of the errata sheet, let us know. Be sure to download the free Andrés Notation Guide which explains the special notations used.
