The recordings.

This week we've been playing Bartok's 'The Wooden Prince', and for the next couple of days we are recording it, and I've got to say, it's bloody hard work. We had a backdrop of an abstract film supposedly illustrating the story as we played for the concert yesterday, but it was so abstract as to be almost pointless. One of the trumpeters described it as being Ken Russell without the tits, and he was pretty much right.

Next week it's Bluebeard's Castle, which is supposed to be a bit better.
