John Barrows Masterclass Part 1
The First Annual French Horn Workshop was held at Florida State University in 1969.
John Barrows gave what sounds like a masterclass, and at some point during the session took questions from the floor (for this as with all the items, we are more than happy for people who were there to tell us what happened!) Barrows style is quite discursive, but the sections fit into broad themes –
Part 1 – mouthpieces, Conn 8Ds, and Verne Reynolds
Part 2 – mouthpieces, his own playing, and Geyer horns
Part 3 – bore and playing styles
Part 4 – Jaenicke and famous recordings of the time
Part 5 – playing style, hand stopping
