They have been a great help through out the years with my other 8 recordings both with valved and natural horn. Thank you ARSIS!
While on that subject, the hard copy format will be formatted on an USB FLASH DRIVE!!! That is how we are able to send you even more video footage than would be possible on a normal audio CD formato or even a DVD!
With your help we will have more than enough space on the flash drive to add all kinds of bonus material like:
The text notes of the British musicologist and horn player, John Humphries.
( This alone is a must have for every horn player.)
The "Making of Video" (You can be in it yourself, if you become one of our Diamond Sponsors!!!)
Mozart´s manuscripts, pictures.
And much, much more....with some surprises
We hope you will join us, however you can.
