ABC – Wednesday ~ 20E

Mrs. Nesbitt’s ABC-Wednesday

Round 20-E

My 129th entry – bijdrage

Started-Gestart: 28-08-2014 : 15-G

Hello and good morning, -afternoon, -evening, dear people who all participate is this wonderful photo-meme, which is a joy to me, week after week, after week. I’m always curious to what you come up with!

The challenging letter of this week is E and I chose Euphonium

My most favorite instrument by far is the Euphonium, which I’ve played for several years untill my health no longer permitted it and I had to stop with lots of sadness ofcourse.
After the accordion, a bugle, a trumpet, a s-bas I switched to the Euphonium, which I always wanted.
This instrument has the most beautiful sound of all windinstruments if you ask me.

To introduce you to the specific sound of it…. Watch and hear video beneath:

      • mijn longfunctie is van 57% terug op zo rond de 80%
        mijn vader speelde trompet en was tot ergens midden jaren ’60 een straffe roker
        ik wil nu aanhouder worden met minder bier drinken

        fijne avond groet

        • Ik zou het nu niet weten…. ik laat het nooit meer testen…. zie ik het nut niet van in.
          Ik wil wel met roken stoppen maar die wens is nog niet sterk genoeg om het ook te kunnen, of dat ooit wel komt of niet, geen idee, dat zie ik dan tzt wel.
          Mijn energie gaat nu nog steeds het meest zitten in het ‘leven’ volgens de nieuwe regels die ik vorig jaar op me genomen heb en dat betekent ook dat ik mezelf niet al te hard hoef aan te pakken.

          Dat vind ik dan wel weer een heel mooi streven die ik van ♥-e toejuich maar ja ik heb dan ook een afgrijselijke hekel aan dat goedje door wat ik erdoor ervaren heb. Ik wens je oprecht ontzettend van ♥-e toe dat het je zal lukken!!

  1. Hi Melody,
    what an exquisite sound, such a shame you can’t play
    your Euphonilm any longer,
    Do you play any other instruments now ?
    I used to play the piano and have always sung in choirs but
    I can’t do that any longer as iIcan’t stand for more than a few
    minutes, then my back goes into spasm, indescribable pain.
    Itis so frustrating i used to love singing,,, never ming I’ve still got
    my writing and talking to all the lovely people I’ve met through
    blogging,
    Good post,
    Best wishes,
    Di.

    • Hi Di

      Nice to read you like to hear something like this.

      It indeed was not a pleasure, sometimes I still miss it very much.

      No I don’t play because my joints don’t allow it anymore.
      In my youth I also danced a lot… that stopped when I had an accident on which I broke my back.
      I have sung also from very young till febr. 2008. I had to have surgery in my head due to a severe infection and at that time my vocal cords got damaged so I can’t sing anymore but I still know who that feels and how I loved it so I can relate to you in missing that.

      Like you I had to discover other things to find joy in, thankfully I succeeded in that ;-) Blogging, photographing, friends and family.

      Thank you, likewise!!

  2. LOVE the sound of it…is it also called a French Horn? Or is it completely different – probably in the same family, though. My sister played French Horn In the school band.

  3. Very beautiful Melody, – you must have enjoyed the instrument so much. I am so grateful for the music in my life – piano, organ and lately the Ukulele. My husband and I used to play duets on the piano, and he also played the tuba. I am very lucky to still be able to play and y fingers say ‘thank you’…..

  4. Love the Pearl Fishers duet, beautifully restrained playing. My first thought on hearing the word Euphonium is always the song The Floral Dance just because its chorus rhyme tends to stick in the mind “I thought I could hear the curious tone/ of the cornet, clarinet and big trombone/fiddle, ‘cello, big base drum,/ Bassoon, flute and euphonium/Far away as if in a trance/I heard the sound of the floral dance”

  5. Well, I learned something new ! I had never heard this word, for me all the things you blow in are trumpets except a flute of course, lol !

  6. Oh, Melody, I feel like you have just given me an incredible gift. Those pieces touched my soul in the way only beautiful music can. I had never heard a euphonium, but now that I have, it makes me wish for more! Those pieces are so beautiful. The second one is familiar to me, but I think by another name, possible a hymn which I can’t think of at the moment.
