Not only being the first supporter of his son Richard and one of the best hornists of his time, the Bavarian court musician Franz Strauss also liked to compose from time to time. The compositions for horn thus created were meant to be performed by himself at concerts and social gatherings.

Whether as cheerful 'Oberbayerische Gebirgsweise' or merrily galloping 'Rondino à Chasse', Strauss's settings for horn quartet published in this edition for the first time combine the joy of playing with the splendour of 19th-century light music.
