I certainly hope that many of you had a chance to hear the Metropolitan
Opera's live performance of Mozart's "La clemenza di Tito" today.
Unfortunately, no matter how good one's audio system is, it still ain't a live
performance unless you're in the hall. I had never heard Ricardo before and,
of course, he lived up to his press releases.
But I was absolutely in awe of the basset horn player! I missed the name.
Can anyone help me out? One thought occurred to me, however. Leblanc gets a
lot of mileage out of Mr. Morales' endorsement. Does the Met's clarinet II
player also play on Leblanc? If not, does he then have to match Mr. Morales
sound while playing a Buffet.
Just some thought from somewho who plays a lot of Clarinetto II.
