Back to work

Post by FOSSIL » Tue Sep 15, 2020 12:48 pm

I went back to my job at the opera this week.. weird.
11 part arrangement of a Janecek opera with just a few singers. Recording.
Here is the last bit..... yes that is treble clef....in at the deep end.

High C for a bass trombone! I keep telling the kids you can't ignore range but here it is in black and white!

And the 32nd notes -- even in that slow tempo they can be unnerving.

Bet it really felt goo to be back in the saddle.

That's good Chris! It looks a bit difficult in my eyes, but I think you enjoy it! Good to see the world slowly goes back to more playing.

Yeh ! a lot of goo on my saddle.... good to be back ? Sure, but after six months away from doing what I have done day in day out for more than 40 years, it feels very strange indeed. It makes you realise that regular ensemble work leads to a certain mindset that becomes automatic in pro players and after a long break that mindset needs a bit of a kick to switch on.
