The music Mozart wrote for his horn-playing friend Joseph Leutgeb is still some of the finest music ever written for horn.

We feature some of the highlights: the lyrical Horn Quintet, a reconstruction of Mozart's unfinished Rondo, K. 371 played on hand horn and the Horn Concerto No. 4 from a performance by the Romanian Radio Chamber Orchestra.
