Re Bassoonists:

I once was reading a German music score, and saw a passage marked 'fag solo'.

:D

by

Lol - did you read it in German (Fag., i.e. Fagott, from "fagotto" in Italian = bassoon) or in English (fag, i.e. referring, among other definitions, to drudgery) or an abbreviation/acronym, like FAG (Field Advisory Group, Freaky Alien Genotype, etc., etc.)?

:angel::D:D:D



by

Oh, I read it in German, but I was shocked, SHOCKED, nevertheless.  :D

by

@T(h)ink

I preferred to skip certain shocking definitions - lol. :O:angel::D


We'd better focus on more cheerful, musical aspects - it is snowing here - again:


:)

@ Marianne:

Yes, these two are much more wholesome.  :)

Interesting that one uses a belt to support the bassoon, and the other a shoulder strap.

Snowing again?  But it's almost MayMust be climate change. :)

by

Yes, it must be a question of clothing, comfort or preference.

A lasting snow coat of more than a few cm at lower altitudes is rare after Easter, resp. in late April, and the chill in the Alpine regions will last for another week or so.

We had, though, a series of Christmas holidays without snow and white Easter weeks, but this year, temperatures went on a "rollercoaster ride" from "unusually warm" to "unusually cold".

And in this performance, he has the bassoon clipped to his jacket.  :)

Well, soon it will be May, and Frau Sunna's victory over Herrn Winter will be complete! :D

by

Yes, indeed, it looks a bit weird and somehow uncomfortable - lol.

:D

Yes, it is May 1st today, and there's rain to come. Yesterday was rather sunny and mild. But can you imagine a grey morning on May 1st and still very large patches of snow on the meadows, at altitudes far below 1000 m?
