James Joyce

New York
I got my horn back and I’ve been playing the missing link for 4 days now. It’s great.  At the very first I realized I was trying to blow too hard. Then I started to get  what the dynamic resistance was about, like blowing a column of water up a hose and changing the level just slightly. Not effort-full at all but you can get feedback from it.   Now I think I’m starting to get it, and it just keeps sounding better.  The tone is rich and full, so much like a horn. It plays like a single instrument up over the break.  I’m getting a nice sweet and warm tone but it seems like I can learn to push it around. The ligature is very nice. Thank you so much for the piece.
