And it features Roger Weismeyer! I worked with Roger one year (my final year, his first) in Midsummer Mozart. He helped keep me sane, as it was an extremely rough run for me. In this video about the Nashville Symphony playing the score to Wizard of Oz you can hear Roger, and he sounds lovely.

And I love this:

“For instance, when the witch comes in, the composer put it in the English horn, which can sound quite nasty if it wants to.”

YOU BET! (We EH players can be pretty nasty, too. Tee hee.)

How fun to hear Roger playing after all these years. But I do miss his pony tail! ;-)
