Horn Concerto, op. 43Sonata, op. 43aAdagio and Rondo, op. 43bOde, op. 45

Ode and Sonata grew out of the Marvell setting (The Noon's Repose, op 39 / iii). 

The Horn Concerto is simply the two horn-and-orchestra works (Sonata & Adagio and Rondo) joined up:  they were premièred separately because, before Barry Tuckwell showed the contrary, the whole was deemed too taxing for the soloist.
