Once again, I find myself in the chemistry dept. library. This time, I have an hours wait whilst I make a lithium enolate at about -70 deg. C. Fun!!
Managed to do a concert on Saturday night, as I was playing the piccolo in Tchaikovsky’s 5th symphony. I think it’s important to point out that whilst it’s a great piece to listen to, it’s quite obvious that Mr. Tchaikovsky didn’t have a clue about wind instruments, especially the piccolo. It’s a crap part, and I’ve distinctly decided I don’t like the piece any more. If it had snowed that night, my opinion of it might be higher (don’t ask), but it didn’t. And I’ve just been informed that I have a new bed. This day is getting better and better already.
