 Hi,

I restarted an old project of mine, working on the Hamburg Concerto of György Ligeti (one of my favorite composers) .

It demonstrates the interaction of Horns / cornos in all variation, with and without valve . Key of this interaction is the use of four "Corno Naturale" - Natural Horn. (no punch intended) .

If you listen to the records, especially in the Praeludium, you hear a fascinating interaction of sounds of the different brass and woodwinds 

From what Iearned in a very old thread here is that it is a horn without valve.

Is there a corresponding VSL instrument?

There is currently no natural horn.  That would be very good to have though, with multiple crooks inserted and half-stopped notes between natural harmonic intervals that are done with the hand in the bell.

Sorry, that sounds a little obscene somehow...

Well, maybe it's because once at an orchestra rehearsal a guy yelled out to the horn section, "O.K. get your hands out of the horns, now!"  and somehow that stuck with me...
