Horn parts

  • Horn parts are slightly unclear: in the Breitkopf edition, the first page indicates two lines, each labelled "corno", i.e. each line singular = 2 horns. However, on the second page of the full score, each line says "Cor.I", which would indicate more than one on each line. On page 3, the indication is "solo à l'orchestre", also indicating more than one. At no point is there more than a single line of notes on each staff, so if there are 4 horns, the 2nd horns will be playing unison.
