At Corniworld Publications we specialise in providing new, challenging and exciting arrangements and compositions for horn. Works for solo horn to large horn ensembles, covering a wide variety of styles, genres and playing abilities. All pieces have been expertly arranged and composed by professional horn players and teachers. We also have an expanding catalogue of brass ensemble arrangements and horn related recordings.
By combining computer-design with years of playing experience, our mutes achieve all three of our key objectives - 1) Produce a beautiful sound. 2) Play in tune across the range with no ‘problem’ notes. 3) Are easy to play - all within an aesthetically pleasing package.
The sound could be described as rounder, darker, and smoother than aluminium mutes, with a full resonance, and fewer nasal or metallic overtones (less ‘zingy’).
They include patent-applied-for features that eliminate any standing waves, thereby removing any problematic notes, and aiding tuning across the whole range of the instrument.
They slot very easily, better even than the open horn in some cases, and are extremely free-blowing.
