MetadataShow full item record
Vissarion Shebalin’s Horn Concertino No. 2 fulfills a void in horn concertino repertoire, as it is written in a formalist aesthetic. Due to the tight control of the Soviet regime during Shebalin’s time, many of his compositions have been overlooked. It is the goal of this document to highlight the importance of this composition and to inspire future performances. An examination of Shebalin’s life and the compositional climate in which he lived, as well as a performance practice analysis of Horn Concertino No. 2, will provide a foundation for an understanding of this composition.
