just seen this incredible story on the BBC website
have you ever noticed that truly remarkable musicians do not see themselves as being at all remarkable?
Amazing man, total respect.
Astonishing! Fantastic, totally inspirational!
Inspirational indeed! Thanks for sharing this amazing story Sandy.
There are no words to describe how breathtaking that is. Astonishing.
My first thought was 'how does he mute?' - and upon realising that he doesn't, and controls his tone through thought, my brain just about melted. The physical nature of the French horn requires the hand mute technique, and the fact that he can adapt the sound in the same way with just his embouchure and state of mind is incredible.
Such dedication - and beautiful playing too.
Also worth checking out is The British Para orchestra (www.paraorchestra.com ).I think. Set up by Charles Hazelwood. The son of a friend of mine plays with them, as does Clarence Adoo. They recently played in Qatar.
