The French Horn from the Author: Jeremy Montagu. This book recounts the history and development of the French horn throughout its musical history. It describes the three main stages of its development: the hunting-horn type, blown with the bell in the air, as used by Bach and Handel; the hand horn, written for by Mozart, Hadyn and Beethoven, which is now being revived by many early-instrument orchestras; and the valve horn, familiar today, but which has gone through many stages since the early nineteenth century. Further sections describe how horns are made and how they work. The book is illustrated with many photographs from the greatest collection of horns in Britain, initially formed by Reginald Morley-Pegge and presented as a memorial by his son to the Bate Collection in Oxford.

The Black Horn from the Author: Robert Lee Watt. The Black Horn: The Story of Classical French Hornist Robert Lee Watt tells the story of the first African American French Hornist hired by a major symphony in the United States. Today, few African Americans hold chairs in major American symphony orchestras, and Watt is the first in many years to write about this uniquely exhilarating—and at times painful—experience. The Black Horn chronicles the upbringing of a young boy fascinated by the sound of the French horn. Watt walks readers through the many obstacles of the racial climate in the United States, both on and off stage, and his efforts to learn and eventually master an instrument little considered in the African American community. Even the author’s own father, who played trumpet, sought to dissuade the young classical musician in the making. He faced opposition from within the community—where the instrument was deemed by Watt’s father a “middle instrument suited only for thin-lipped white boys”—and from without. Watt also documented his struggles as a student at a nearly all-white major music conservatory, as well as his first job in a major symphony orchestra after the conservatory canceled his scholarship. Watt subsequently chronicles his triumphs and travails as a musician when confronting the realities of race in America and the world of classical music. This book will surely interest any classical musician and student, particularly those of color, seeking to grasp the sometimes troubled history of being the only “black horn.”
