You have made the soprano as effortless to play as I could have dreamed. I have just spent about a half hour with the piece this morning. It speaks and plays so fluidly. You nailed the balance between stability and flexibility, it plays beautifully in tune on my 1927 Conn. There is also a great balance between the natural fatness of the Conn and a clarity of sound that I didn’t think was achievable. The balance of being free blowing but still having the right amount of resistance to control and shape the notes is more than I could have hoped for.
