Today is the last day of our chamber music tour that began on March 1st. We drove back from Montana yesterday and one speeding ticket later, we arrived at our final destination of the Littleton Museum. It has been a really positive experience so far and perhaps the best part was a performance/lecture at the Bozeman Public Library where we both played and spoke about the art of transcription and why it is important to continue pushing the boundaries of chamber music. We gave examples of "bad transcriptions" coupled with the ones David finally chose and it seemed to really open some eyes as to just how complicated an art this really is.
I have really enjoyed having the opportunity to play the Loboe on this trip and cannot wait to perform some original compositions at the end of April!
