    Default Piano/French Horn/Voice?

    This is a tough one--at least, for me it is. Perhaps for some of the more knowledgeable members of this forum, it might not present quite so much of a challenge.

    I'm trying to find examples of compositions written for piano, French horn, and voice (either alto or soprano). Just those three parts, with no other instruments or voices.

    I realize it's a fairly uncommon ensemble, and therefore I would be grateful to anyone who can point me to such trios.

    There's a song by Richard Strauss called "An Alpine Horn", for soprano horn, and piano .
    I have an EMI recording of it with Anne Murray, hornist Radovan Vlatkovic, and conductor Jeffrey Tate at the piano,coupled with the two Strauss horn concertos. The song is very pretty.
    I know there are a number of other works for this combinationn,but can't think of them offhand.
    Try Wikipedia. They're always helpful.

    Thanks superhorn, this is a great recommendation and I will check it out at once.

    Are you referring to Anne Murray, the Canadian pop singer of the 70s and 80s?
