  • January 23, 2009 Response To Breath Marks

    This piece is pefectly written the reason for all of the breath marks was because Strauss wrote this for his father who was a world renowned horn player. His father unfortunately had some breathing condition that required him to take breaths more often and, hence, all of the breath marks

  • April 30, 2007 good audition piece

    The opening measures make for a brilliant first impression on the judges. This piece got me into Tennessee Governor's School for the Arts- for which I am extremely grateful. The piece isn't challenging technically, but it is still a very beautiful composition. This ranks up there with Saint...

    -Saens Op. 94 in my opinion as some of the best solo pieces.
