Lidl 310 Descant Horn in F Alto
The Lidl 310 Descant Horn is pitched in high F (F Alto). It is a three valve single horn with a fixed yellow brass bell. Ideal for extremely demanding high Baroque horn parts such as Bach’s Brandenburg Concerto No.1 and Mass in B Minor – listen out for for the horn obbligato in the Quoniam – and other occasions when only the high range is needed. Descant horns are frequently used by professional players seeking some extra security in performance and in the recording studio.
