I kind of wish I could play the French horn well because when done right, it’s very beautiful. Other than that, I think with my minimal skills in guitar and piano, with a little elbow grease I could play almost anything (with some exceptions). However, it would be so cool to conduct.
Day 27: A Song You Wish You Could Play
J.S. Bach – “Toccata and Fugue in D Minor” (Stokowkski arrangement)
I like this Bach piece arranged for wind ensemble a lot better than the original, which is just on organ.
Ralph Vaughan Williams – “Fantasia on a Theme by Thomas Tallis]
Antonin Dvořák – “Symphony No. 9 in E Minor ‘From the New World,’ Finale”
Shostakovich – “Symphony No. 5 in D Minor, Finale”
