French Horn

Why did you choose your instrument / Pourquoi avez-vous choisi cet instrument ?
On the advise of my piano teacher.

What are your professional goals? / Décrivez quelques-unes de vos ambitions professionnelles.
To have work and play coincide in a rewarding way.

What are your interests outside classical music / Avez-vous d’autres intérêts à part la musique classique ?
Computers, spending time with family. Not a lot of time for anything else.

Who is your favourite classical musician? / Quel est votre artiste (classique) préféré ?
I don't really have a strong apprecation for solo artists. For me, a single instrument is just lacking the variety necessary to create the truly intensely emotional musicaly experience that I'm always looking for.

What has recently played on your Mp3? / Qu’écoutez-vous ces jours-ci sur votre Mp3?
My iPod is always set to random. Most recently though I was listening to 4 different recordings, and 1 different edition of Schumann's Symphony No. 4 in D minor as I tried to determine which recording I found the most effective, at which parts and why. Especially in the outer movements.

What is there about you that you think people might be surprised to know? / Y a-t-il quelque chose à votre propos qui est un peu surprenant ou hors de l’ordinaire?
Not sure.
