Strange and sad days indeed. And yet, this time is allowing me to explore other areas of my life that I’ve let go for a while. Books, getting the garden in shape, and diving into my library of solo horn works. I’d forgotten how much stuff I had!
I’ve recently rediscovered Michael Haydn’s double horn concerto and reached out to fellow section player William Prince to start to work it up for some performance in the future somewhere. What a great piece!
Low horn playing has also been a keen interest and I’ve been spending a lot of practice time with a set of trombone etudes. Helps me work on my bass clef, key-of-C transposition too :).
Staying in shape while hunkered down. Hope to be playing in public again soon! For now, I have to settle for serenading my kitties, Loki and Saga.
