The English horn is the alto instrument of the oboe family. Since the Classical era, orchestras have made use of the English horn’s melancholy sound to suggest rural and pastoral scenes and to perform mournful airs. It is chiefly an orchestra instrument.
This English horn is played by Viennese musician Stephan Natschläger who plays the instrument in the Viennese tradition. As an alternative, we also offer the English Horn (French), which is also used in the Vienna Special Edition, played in the French school.
Your purchase of English horn (Viennese) entitles you to download the free Vienna Instruments software player as well as the Vienna Ensemble mixing and host software.

Vienna Instruments require the ViennaKey!
This USB protection device by eLicenser (by Steinberg, formerly Syncrosoft) is not included in any collection, it is a separate item you have to get additionally. So you’ll have to order at least one ViennaKey with your first purchase. It will be put inside the shopping basket automatically but can be deleted if not required. Customers who order the complete SYMPHONIC CUBE will get one ViennaKey for free (not shown in the basket). If you already own another eLicenser USB protection device (e.g., from Steinberg or Arturia), you can use it for the VIENNA INSTRUMENTS, too. Each dongle can store up to 100 product licenses.
Additionally an internet connection on any computer is required to authorize a VSL product.
