The Xerxes that they did here in Chicago with Ann Murray was really one of the great productions of Handel of all time. Here is much of what was said that afternoon.

A solid music stand gives you some kickback from the sound. A little about playing trumpet, now. What are your other interests? This trip, for instance, involves 10 days, and miles driving. His more recent performances alongside Emma KirkbyLynn Dawson, Carolyn Sampson, Bryn Terfel and Lesley Garrett have cemented his international reputation as one of classical music’s great ambassadors.

One of the problems is the acoustic is designed for the listener, not for the performer. It will swing pperkins. He was a great bloke to have in the pub with you, full of stories and a good sense of humor.

Some have been very famous, some have had difficult lives, some are happy to be just ordinary. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. I think that always astonishes people. You were just saying that the trumpet students now are much better taught.

You do strive for it and that moment happens when you least expect it sometimes. I hope things are changing. Almost everybody who does the teaching now is a university graduate. And sadly, without a public crisoian that sort of sponsors us emotionally, as it were, the arts are in quite a bit of difficulty in England.

And I really do believe that includes the audience.
