This week has been a blast ! a Mahler Blast ! I just love playing the horn, and what beter composer to express this than with every Horn players favorite, Gustav Mahler !
I received this photo last night from my good friend Brynn, a very talented concert violinist, and she just bought this motorcycle for herself !
Brynn the motorcycle MAMA !
Brynn has been my good friend for the last 10 years, as she also lived in Holland and played with the Residentie Orchestra in The Hague. She now lives in California, and she is the one I am visiting next month on March 21st. I just wrote her last night how I would think it would be so cool for the entire Mahler Horn section, all 8 of us, to play the ending of the last movement, the part where the Horns stand up and play the most famous Mahler horn call, all sitting on cool motorcycles, like the very one she bought !! and then ride out of the theatre at the very end !!! Ha ha.. ha.. that would really turn heads !
Don't you just love to fantasize ! and some people really do act on the fantasies !
