Orchestral playing has never been this much fun

April 2, 2006 16:38

Wooo, a new look blog page! I prefer to read against a white background but apart from that its okay. Anyway. I had such an enjoyable orchestral concert last night! The acoustic in the church was great and we played really well. We played Vaughn Williams Syphony no 5, and some Rossini arranged by Britten, and a Rawsthorne overture which is quite a funny piece. Im amazed at how my sight reading is coming on with practice as well, having only played for 6 years. Also im excited about learning some new repertoire for a performing diploma (I already passed one but you can never have enough lol), Im going to play Mozart no 4, somo solo Bach (Siciliano and presto) and ZIGGERUNIEGERNUNERWIESERNUNANANU!!!
I can already play the Bach and Ziggy Stardust, the Mozart shouldnt be a problem but I will definately get some lessons to help with phrasing and stuff. Also I need to write a cadenza because the ones in my copy of the music arent up to much. Anyway wish me luck with that :-D
