    I would say your best bet would be a horn concerto with a piano reduction accompaniment.

    Beethoven: Horn Sonata in F, Op. 17

    Ries: Horn Sonata in F, Op. 34

    Czerny: Andante & Polonaise for Horn and Piano in E

    Debussy: "Beau Soir"

    Cherubini: Two Horn Sonatas

    Schumann: Adagio & Allegro, Op. 70 [this was also written for viola in place of the horn, though]

    I think there was also one by Paul Dukas but I can't remember what it was called.

    The score for Beethoven's Horn Sonata. Knowing Beethoven, I suspect this one may not be too easy. Check imslp for other works as well.

    The Dukas piece is called "Vilanelle " for horn and piano . It has also been orchestrated .
    This is one of the few works of Dukas the composer allowed to survive other than the Sorcereor's apprentice. There is a classic recording by the legendary Dennis Brain (1921-1957), and i have the orchestral version with Hermann Baumann ,Kurt Masur and the Gewandhaus orchestra on Philips .

    Poulenc's Elegie for horn and piano. Not being a musician I wouldn't know how easy or difficult it is but it's a good piece of work - written in memory of Dennis Brain.
