Markus Zahnhausen, b. 1965, is one of the leading recorder players of our time. In his works for recorder he combines traditional and modern sounds. The central theme of his works is a love of Nature. The Horns of Elfland (1999) is based upon a poem by Alfred Lord Tennyson (1809-1892). The composer writes: I have taken Tennyson's picture of the clear and tender notes of the horns of the imaginary, magical world of Elfland and attempted to translate it into music. The very essence of this work is its quietness. The central focus of the composition is the echo in its multiple aspects. This echo is often not an exact reproduction of the notes but a deliberate variation, analysis or reinterpretation of their original form.

"My husband and I are really impressed with your customer service. It's a rarity to experience the type of attention that you have paid to this matter. The school where our two kids attend, has violin as a part of their third grade curriculum. After the customer service you have shown we both would feel comfortable endorsing your company to other parents at the school who will be needing violins and other instruments for their children."

"I couldn't believe it! I ordered a drumset for my nephew for his birthday through your website just 2 days before his birthday. Ordering so late I just knew it wouldn't arrive until a few days after his birthday. I was thrilled when he called during his "big party day" to say it arrived and Thanks. He's still young enough that getting your birthday presents on the day of is still a big deal. Thank you so much!"
