You just blow through it right, why are you making such a fuss about it? WRONG. Horn players of the world, we're finally recognising you for what you are: real-life heroes of the orchestra… albeit heroes covered in spit.
"The French horn is a really straight-forward and well-behaved instrument"
- no horn player ever
Those two words will become the thing that haunts your days and appears in your nightmares.
The French horn may look like a musical instrument but it's actually a vessel specifically designed to capture the maximum amount of moisture. We know. It's gross.
Good job WE ALWAYS BRING A BOOK TO REHEARSAL.
We're trying, OK!?
Why must you do this to us, orchestra gods?
LOOK AT US LAUGHING.
i love scheherazade but seriously rimsky why did you enforce such pain upon horn 1 #orchestraproblems— frankie//TOUR (@phanzyme) October 11, 2014
And spending half a rehearsal trying to locate that drop of water in 15 miles of piping.
We love you Wagner.
