The well-known standard for all questions concerning the technique and playing of the horn - now in English translation.

The work is relevant to professionals as well as students. Apart from issues of daily practice and playing, it also deals with topics that haven't been covered within horn literature until recently: playing the high F-horn or the Wagner-tuba, the arrangement of the cadenza in the solo concertos (including cadenzas of all established concertos), personal management as a performer, and other subjects. 

The German edition has received the German award "Best Edition" 2000.
