Good 4th horn parts was created by Stew King
Hi,
As an amateur low horn player (4th, trained as tubist), i find that my orchestra music director usually schedules works that only call for 1&2 horns. This coming up concert, out of the 4 works, only 1 has a 4th horn part. Since i don't get paid, i do care about how much i get to play.

So i'm asking if anyone can suggest some standard-ish orchestral works (we won't do opera unless it's an overture, nor can we find 8 horns) that have killer 4th horn parts, or at least are heavy with 4th horn notes; i'd love to pass them on to the music director.

Thanks in advance,
-Stew

I played 4th horn in Danzon No. 2 by Arturo Marquez and found it to be quite satisfying. Great piece as well.
