Year of composition
It is an eminently virtuousistic composition for the horn player, but also full of interesting dialogues with the pianist which often acquire almost orchestral textures.
The Introduction is slow, based on a dodecatonic melody from the start. The seven notes presented by the solo horn, which will also be the main subject of the Gallop, has a characteristic rhythmic design, which becomes more lyrical and expressive as it develops.
The Gallop is fast and virtuousistic. After the rhythmic first theme, and without a pause, the horn suddenly presents a new, more relaxed idea of a more expressive nature which is then amply developed. A small interlude leads us to the changed reexposition of both subjects. A short Coda, based on the main theme, starts a tense rise to finish the piece brilliantly.
