    Default The coldest place on Earth

    Here's a little tune I wrote after seeing a documentary about life in Yakutsk, the coldest place on the planet.

    My pleasure! Really a nice soprano sound. Hopefully this means that you’ve found a soprano that you were looking for some time ago. Cheers!

    I did, sort of. The horn is the Mahillon I bought from member Uwe Steinmetz, with a nameless (but old) mouthpiece I found in a shop.

    Beautiful, measured, artistic, and very lovely tone. Putting feeling first and not trying to just show off technique always wins my vote.

    Thank you. I enjoyed that. It was almost folk music in a strange kind of way.

    A very cool piece in every sense of the word. Love the form of it - the breaks, the Siberian sparse accompagniment combined with beautiful warm soprano sound.
