TIL the English horn is not english at all. Its name comes from a mistranslation "cor angle", which means "angled horn" in French, heard instead as "cor anglais." dictionary.onmusic.org/te…

New cor anglais music

Featuring Andrew Knights playing cor anglais in a quite different context. The cor perfectly matches the mood of the song I think. Don't know why the thumnail doesn't show!

PLEASE HELP - "Flute (doubling piccolo), Oboe (doubling cor anglais)"

If I've been asked to write a piece with "Flute (doubling piccolo)" and "Oboe (doubling cor anglais)", what exactly does this mean? I'll assume the doubled instruments don't have to always be playing the same things, because that would seem strange in a modern piece of art music.

For cor anglais players - how realistic is this?

I don't play cor anglais but I love the instrument and have written quite a bit for it. As I unfortunately haven't found a real player yet, I have used the cor anglais sound from the Sibelius program for this recording. To my ears it's incredibly realistic, but I'd be interested in what somebody who actually plays it thinks - how close is it?

Sonatina for Cor Anglais and Piano (by me) - anybody want to try playing it?

Hi all,

I'm an enthusiastic amateur composer who doesn't know any classical musicians. I've written a sonatina movement for cor anglais and piano in A-flat Lydian mode (eventually, I want to compose a second movement) and was wondering if any of you would be curious to give it a try. It's tonal but fairly "modern"/chromatic. My favourite composers are Arnold Schoenberg, BΓ©la BartΓ³k, Olivier Messiaen, Paul Hindemith, Igor Stravinsky, you get the idea.

Full score: https://www.scribd.com/document/397229040/Philipp-Ruiz-Sonatina-for-Cor-Anglais-and-Piano-2017

Cor anglais part: https://www.scribd.com/document/397229215/Philipp-Ruiz-Sonatina-for-Cor-Anglais-and-Piano-cor-anglais-part

If you decide to try and play it, please feel free to give me any honest opinions on playability, difficulty, whether you like it, et cetera :) Maybe you even know a pianist who would play it with you… in front of a microphone…? ;D

All the best,

β€” Philipp :)

Piece advice for oboe and cor anglais

Hei, unfortunately I am running out of pieces I can practice (for fun), thus I need a new list of pieces I can play, both for the oboe and the cor anglais. Niveau would be entrance university level, maybe a bit higher. Which pieces are possible for that? Thanks!

How did the French horn get its name in english but the English Horn is known as the Cor Anglais?

Basically the title. Curious as French horn is obviously English and you would imagine that the English horn would be known as suck but we call it the Cor Anglais. Which is obviously French. How did this naming come about?

Cor Anglais!

So I'm borrowing a cor in a few days for a gig in October but I haven't played oboe in over a year (I'm mainly a clarinetist and bassoonist for performance) and I need to get back into it. What should I know about cor and what reeds should I get to get back into oboe playing?
