 BASSET HORN - LoveToKnow Article on BASSET HORN
The invention of the basset horn in 1770 is attributed to a clarinet maker of Passau, named Horn, whose name was given to the instrument; by a misnomer, the basset horn became known in Italy as corno di bassetlo, and in France as car de basset.
The tone of the basset horn is extremely reedy and rich, especially in the medium and low registers; the tone color is similar to that of the clarinet without its brilliancy; it is mellow and sensuous, but slightly sombre, and therefore well adapted for music of an elegiac funereal character.

 Mendelssohn Concertpieces
It was the fact that Carl Baermann played basset horn (as well as bass clarinet) in what is today the Munich Philharmonic but was then, the Munich Court Orchestra (and before that the Mannheim Orchestra) which was the catalyst for the two Mendelssohn Concertpieces for clarinet, basset horn, and piano heard on this recording.
Only the presence of some magnificent music that requires the instrument - the Mozart Requiem, for example - has sustained it for some two centuries, though recent technical improvements and its employment in significant compositions by Richard Strauss have caused a rebirth of the basset horn.

 microtone - Hutchinson encyclopedia article about microtone
The Czech composer Alois Hába and Mexican Julián Carrillo composed in smaller divisions, and since 1984 Karlheinz Stockhausen has developed notations of up to 16ths of a tone for basset horn and flute, for example in Xi (1986) for basset horn.
Normally microtones belong in the domain of expressive pitch variation in acoustic music, being difficult to notate and perform precisely because most instruments other than the voice or violin family are designed to produce tempered pitches, or have fixed frets or keys.
When played against a drone, however, they become more clearly quantifiable as audible beat frequencies. /microtone   (218 words)
