The ’I Believe In Father Christmas’ composer has passed away.
Look at this guy playing Ride of the Valkyries on the trombone while skiing. Wagner has never sounded like this before.
Sean Pawling is a god among mortals
Here he is paying absolutely no attention to the Doppler effect and skiing down an Alpine slope while playing the trombone like a full-on genius.
He smashes Ride of the Valkyries
Hark! What winged Alpine spirit is that? (It's Sean Pawling again.)
He can also do Siegfried
To finish, he also gives us a bit of Siegfried's theme. Note the plastic trombone: when you're travelling at speed, you need to keep the weight down.
Sean, we salute you.
Suggestions for future performances: Ski-fried's Idyll, Das Gluwheingold and Snohengrin.
