Theatrical: I Found My Horn

  • Colburn School, Zipper Hall

I Found My Horn
Writers: Jasper Rees and Jonathan Guy Lewis
Director: Harry Burton
Actor: Jonathan Guy Lewis

Jonathan Guy Lewis is directed by Harry Burton in an updated production of this wryly funny and infinitely touching story about making music and confronting one’s private demons. Adapted from Jasper Rees’ popular book, A Devil to Play, the play was premiered in 2008 at the Aldeburgh Festival in Benjamin Britten’s home town. It was performed to great acclaim at the 2014 International Horn Society workshop in London.

A man wakes up at forty to a broken marriage, a beckoning bedsit, and the realisation that he has done nothing to make himself memorable. Then he clambers into the attic... After a lay-off of 25 years, he seeks redemption via the sixteen feet of treacherous brass tubing he never mastered in his youth. Resuming his old French horn, he sets himself an impossible task: to perform a Mozart concerto in front of a paying audience of horn fanatics.

Q&A to follow.

*This is a repeat performance of Thursday, 8/6.

Lecture Performance (Improvisation and Pedagogy)

  • Colburn School, Mayman Hall

Then and Now: Creating Music in the Moment, a friendly workshop for all horn players, any level
Presenter: Lin Foulk

After enjoying 25 years of traditional horn performance and study, Dr. Lin Foulk took a 16-month sabbatical leave in 2013-14 to study classical music improvisation. As a result she has developed a unique approach to teach other classical musicians to play without notated music in a highly accessible, encouraging, and fun classroom environment.

At IHS LA, she will co-present a 60-minute session along with WMU horn students who took “Classical Music Improvisation,” a class that Dr. Foulk offered at WMU in fall 2014. All IHSLA session participants will be led to play improvisations in both large and small ensembles through specific, pre-tested activities using their horn, voice, body percussion, or basic percussion instruments provided by Dr. Foulk.

WMU horn students Nicole Vanden Bosch, Kirstie Keill, Jennifer Kempe, and Jeremy Larson will help co-present this session.

Lecture (Performance Practice)

  • Colburn School, Grand Rehearsal Hall

Are we playing that right? Valve horn performance through the hand horn lens in 19th Century orchestral solos.

Presenter: John Cox & Jeffrey Snedeker 

Many 19th Century orchestral solo passages, scant of interpretative marks that were clear to hand horn players, are now interpreted and performed differently by modern performers on modern instruments. This lecture/demonstration will be a tag-team effort featuring John Cox and Jeffrey Snedeker, and will examine some prominent passages of Beethoven, Berlioz, Brahms, and others in opening discussion of authenticity of understood writing, the transformation to early standard performance practices, and modern practices. Demonstrations will be made on hand horn and valve horn, and maybe a few other horns thrown in for good measure.
