Special features of the instrument:

This instrument of the horn family is suitable for a variety of applications. I use it for Mozart’s post horn serenade, Mahler’s post horn solo and exposed horn parts in pieces by Bach, to name a few. The post horn was no strictly defined instrument in the past, so a corno is probably one of the best possibilities to adequately realise Mahler’s expectations of the sound, for example.

With German Brass, we love to use it as a sound enrichment between horns and fluegehorns.
