October 16, 2008 at 11:20 AMOkay, so first my old half-size violin got run over, and now this.
I left my music on the T. I had it yesterday morning at the Harvard Square T station and was following it while listening to the music, on my way to work. I was sitting on a bench doing this, then the train arrived, it was crowded and chaotic, and I'm not sure what happened then.
Somewhere between Harvard Square and Kendall Square, the music seems to have disappeared.
At least my iPod didn't disappear.
And, in trying to be a conscientious section leader, I had scanned in the parts and emailed them to the section in order to distribute the bowings. So, I still have the scanned parts, with bowings, and can print them out.
Note to self: don't take original music that doesn't belong to you on the T. Make copies and take those on the T instead!!!
But, at least one positive thing: I misjudged the Godard flute suite. It's fun to play it live, with a real soloist. She sounds great. Maybe the problem was listening to a recording of it on the T, where the flute mixes in with the squeaking of the wheels for another kind of "symphony."
