More Moon &c.

Having a great time practicing Lunar Glare. Even (or especially) on my own — for I do need to learn some notes. Paul is learning his notes, so it would be disgraceful for the composer not to learn his own &c.

For the grand finale of the 21 June concert, I was thinking of composing something fresh for all six players — but I am powerfully attracted to the thought that we could bring a scene of White Nights before a willing public; so I am likely to do some arranging instead.

Feels like the end of an era in a way . . . but I got a new double clarinet case. Quite smart, and looks like it will travel easier on a plane. So we can tour anytime now.
