I Found My Horn, By Jasper Rees

The Independent Culture

Though it may not seem it on the surface, Rees has picked a perfect target market in French horn players – a select group but one whose loyalty is assured by the facts that it is officially the hardest instrument to learn and that nobody in the orchestra knows what they go through.

Like an orchestral cross between Will Hodgkinson's Guitar Man and Rory McGrath's more recent Bearded Tit, this is a mid-life memoir with plenty of wind. Provocative and eloquent in places, self-deprecatingly funny in others, it might even strike a note with non-horn players, too.
