Carl Fischer first released the Kopprasch studies for Horn in 1939. More than seventy years have passed, and the Kopprasch studies have remained standards of excellence for all serious Horn players wishing to advance their skills. Most of the etudes focus on technical problems relating to the high range of the Horn, and students are advised to practice the studies not only in the existing key, but also in the corresponding transpositions given next to the tempo signs.
The bilingual (English and German) Hofmeister edition also includes some notes along the way with specific instructions or suggestions for the relevant studies. Part 1 features studies 1-34.
