The next video in the First Solos for the Horn Player project is “No More, I Have Heard Everything” (Non Più, Tutto Ascoltai), by W.A. Mozart. Paraphrasing some of the information provided by SmartMusic, this short work was originally for soprano and tenor with chamber orchestra, and was later included in Act II of the opera seria Idomeneo. It’s a lovely tune, and offers ample opportunities for the horn player to work on expressive playing.
For those who might be interested, here’s the equipment I’m using on this project.
- Horn: Yamaha 667V
- Mouthpiece: Houser, San Francisco 14-0-2 with 17.5mm Houser E Rim
- Camera/Microphones: Zoom Q2n-4K
- Video Editing: Apple Final Cut Pro
I might add that this was the last video recorded in my teaching studio at the University of Louisiana Monroe. Shortly following this session, we were advised that further precautions were being enacted to help prevent the spread of COVID-19. The rest of the videos will be recorded from my home, and I might need to adjust camera placement, microphones, etc. to fit the new space. Stay tuned!
