Description
In the days before his 40th birthday, London journalist Jasper Rees uncovered a French horn that had been gathering dust in the attic for more than two decades and, on a lark, played it at the annual festival of the British Horn Society. His embarrassingly poor performance notwithstanding, Rees embarked on a daunting, bizarre, and ultimately triumphant quest to return to the festival in one year's time and play a Mozart concerto—solo—to a large paying audience. Here is the hilariously off-key, completely charming memoir of an unlikely midlife crisis spent conquering 18 feet of wrapped brass tubing, widely regarded as the most challenging instrument in the orchestra.
