Best Answer

The french horn is part of the brass family of instruments. In an orchestra or similar ensemble the french horn commonly plays akey melodic role in the overall structure of the piece. However the role of the french horn, or any instrument, is entirely up to the composer. This means that it cannot be clarified as to what the definate role of the french horn is, as it has no definite role.

But it is most commonly part of the key melodic structure otherwise it plays a harmonic role.

Do French people play the French horn?

Some French musicians do play the French horn, but it is hard to play and is not a popular instrument. It is not used in folklore compositions and the proportion of musicians playing the French horn isn't certainly any higher than in other countries. Its French name is 'cor d'harmonie', making no reference to its origin.
