    Thank you. You would be correct in your guess. I’m better looking today. The tomboy me was an awkward phase.

    Lots of returning players here. It is encouraging. I stopped playing in 1989. Held on to my euphonium till around 2002 then sold it. (A Holton-branded YEP-321 stencil) Bought a Schiller in 2011 and goofed around on it for a year or so. Started playing regularly again just last fall.

    You sound great! Nice phrasing, full sound and tone and flawless intonation. The interval from the D to the G is tough and you nailed it.

    I had a similar problem - lots of reel-to-reel tapes of old performances (piano/organ), and my old Sony tape player had given up the ghost. I arranged with a digitizing company to transfer my tapes to WAV format and save on USB memory sticks. Then I transferred them to my computer, checked the EQ, cleaned up tape hiss and saved them in FLAC format. The cost was far less than buying a new reel-to-reel player.

    The only bad point was listening to the recordings from an older perspective and realizing how my younger self couldn't tell the difference between playing real fast and making good music...

    I found the audio recording of this concert!!! The cassette is good quality. Looks like a legit recording company was used.

    I wonder if they’re still in business.
