28 July 2013


Some time ago, I set the end of July as the deadline for the Trumpeter. The performance will be in October, and I want ample time for unrushed rehearsal.

Still, it's early enough that there is no need for harshness as I miss this soft deadline. And I am pleased with the musical result, and with the pace of work. Today was largely a day of rest, yet I made progress, adding the clarinet accompaniment to one page of my voice line from the past week. There is another page, and I admit that I am more pleased that I saw to so much of the text this week, than "disappointed" that I have not yet completely caught up.

In all events, the score has reached measure 190. And we are on a roll.
