"Sailor" was composed by Marilyn Harris for New York French hornist John Clarke and features French horn and piano.

While presenting the introspective feel of an anthem, it actually has a nice consistent groove throughout much of the piece. The piano establishes the tone and tempo using multi-meters with subtle syncopated rhythms.  The French horn part has many lyrical, yet angular phrases and a few challenging jumps.  The piece's use of syncopation, range and harmonic surprise make it very enjoyable for both performers and listeners.

"Sailor" is a GRADE 4 French horn solo and highlights the performer's clear tone, mastery of large intervallic jumps, varied articulations, syncopated rhythms and contrasting dynamics. While notated in the classical style, it implies jazz rhythms and tone.  The duration is approximately 2-1/2 minutes.

A solo French horn part and piano score are included. Available only through this website from Sound Studio Publications.
