    ABSTRACT

    This document provides a diverse list of appropriate solo horn repertoire with a formulaic

    approach to programming solo recitals; as a resource, it will provide horn players of all levels

    with more independence and more options when planning recitals.

    The formula will outline various formats for a recital, incorporating a system of

    categorizing the works based on guidelines that include length, style, movements, technical

    features, and the ensemble required. The categories provide consistent, measurable, and reliable

    guidelines which teachers, students, and performers can use to make informed decisions. An

    overview of important historical, stylistic, technical, and pedagogical information for each work

    will aid in repertoire choice and in performance, while information on how and where to obtain

    scores and recordings will facilitate the process. A table of works, organized by composer, is

    included for easy access to information.
