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.
