… it sure feels rotten right now!

I was on vacation for a week. No oboe with me. No reeds. I didn’t even listen to music, believe it or not.

Now I’m home. I’ve listened and watched Don Giovanni twice, and was going to do a third recording but I couldn’t bear it due to less than stellar singing and staging that was bothering me far too much.

And yes, I’ve played oboe.

It feels absolutely rotten!

I hate the “getting it back” period. I know it’ll come back rather quickly. Or at least it usually does. But currently I just dislike my sound, and feel quite clumsy with the instrument.

Rehearsals begin tomorrow.

Sigh.
