Horn player lets rip during ballet performance

Horn player Rune Brodahl with an insanely joyous


When you’re playing the same piece night after night, you sometimes need to mix things up to keep it interesting. A new approach to certain sections, perhaps some new articulation on particular notes…

But horn player Rune Brodahl took things to new level during a performance of Don Quixote (the ballet with music by Ludwig Minkus), letting rip with an utterly wild horn trill during the famous horn solo section.

On-stage, one of the characters sounds his horn and causes all the other characters to cover their ears, so this over-the-top performance is actually perfectly in character.
