We truly live in a golden age of indie game development, for we have a breathtaking, achingly realistic simulation of French Horn controllable by crank on the pocket Playdate.

Developer Thew delivers the good news:

Just add expensive studio time and a rented symphony orchestra to raise the stakes.

So, if you do have a Playdate – we all hate/envy you. If not, you can play via the SDK. Or simply breathe in the incredible commentary:

Learn to play the France Horn; the most elegant and elongated of the brass winds

Being an arguably musical instrument, mere .gif files are incapable of expressing the aural totality of the France Horn. One must crank the brass for oneself
