-A Bassoonist playing the Mozart Bassoon Concerto.
FFM! Day 7: I picked the sound prompt (which can be found here www.youtube.com/watch?v=WHWnFJ…
) as suggested by SCFrankles. The sound prompt is a song, a parody of sorts, for the Mozart French Horn Concerto. The man who sings it sings about how he loved his french horn, even though we wasn't very good at it. Eventually one of his neighbors steals it so he'd stop playing it and the neighbors wouldn't have to hear his terrible playing. As revenge, the singer decides he'll just buy a tuba to play instead.
As soon as I heard the sound prompt I knew that I just had to use it. I had been thinking up some fun alliterations with musical terms and I wanted to incorporate them into this piece, but I wasn't sure how at first. However, once I got back from my bassoon lesson today, I knew exactly what I was going to do.
My twist on the sound prompt is a breakup letter to Mozart. I was playing the Mozart Bassoon Concerto for basically the first time today, and that piece is so difficult! It's also one of the most popular pieces of bassoon repertoire, so you're expected to play it perfectly. At that point I decided I'd break up with Mozart.
But not really. I could never break up with you, Amadeus! ^o^
