Microtonal Tuning/scordatura For French Horn
Hyeonmin Ghim posted a topic in PerformanceHi, guys!! I'm writing a piece for french horn and prepared piano. And I want to tune french horn a quarter tone lower than normal for an entire movement. I don't want to use specific fingering for each and every note. And I know that scordatura is usually used for strings. But would there be a way to achieve the microtonal tuning? I'd think, it won't be so complicated actually. But I'm not a horn player..... And instruments don't always work, as you think they would. Please, share ideas with me, horn players, composers and everyone who's got something say to this!!!
