What notes does the alphorn play?

My first surprise was that what alphorn players call Middle C is actually F# (or G flat). Therefore, making a duet with other instruments suddenly becomes more complicated. Nevertheless, assuming that you accept that you must pretend that F# is Middle C, the below notes are possible. This brings some challenges, as it limits what compositions one can play on the alphorn. But there's lots of music out there!
