As my blogs shows, I have been busy researching details about each of the instruments that I have written my piece for.
I have now reached the timpani and then the strings…and I have to say that I am finding this part of my work really daunting. I am trained to play the piano and the flute; I don’t play anything else and it’s really difficult to know what I need to know (if that makes sense!).
I should be feeling more clued up and to be honest, right now I feel even more out of my depth than before..
