Hearts of horn players beat fasten the Horn Sonata published in this volume is one of the few examples of this class of work since Beethoven, and for many years it was, along with the Piano Quartet op. 38, Rheinberger's most successful chamber work. The sonatas for a stringed instrument or clarinet with piano, also included here, are good neighbors of the sonatas by Brahms and Saint-Saens. In each work the piano part is technically challenging, while the part for the solo instrument is very melodious.
