The “composer-virtuoso” figure was very common in music history. Many composers were well known during their lifetime as wonderful instrumentalists, who were able to exploit the technical possibilities of their instrument to their limit. Many of these composers were pianists; others, like Paganini,became a landmark in the history of violin performance; the French flute virtuoso Taffanel is still the most well-known figure in the history of flute performance. The French composer Eugène Bozza was a rather unique example among this group of composers; born in 1905 and died in 1991, he was a violist by training, a prolific composer that created numerous amount of works in every possible musical genre. The vast majority of these pieces is totally unknown to concert goers outside his native country. However, his chamber works for wind instruments and piano are the core of the repertoire for these instruments. Even though he never played these instruments he managed to deeply understand their technical possibilities more than any other composer. En Forêt for Horn and piano portrays an impressionistic hunting tone-picture. It combines hunting calls of the Horn,accompanied by musical description of galloping horses and sounds of the forest in the piano.
