Garland, Chris

I chose to learn the horn in 1962 as part of my music scholarship to a school with a strong Anglican tradition. Some years later, my battered Lidl instrument sustained further damage when it fell off my bike on the way to a university Gilbert and Sullivan production. A new job as a geologist enabled me to visit Paxman’s, when it was a shop in Covent Garden, and purchase a Holton H378. This horn seemed to play itself and also showed its “metal” in amateur groups including the Richmond Orchestra, the Glasgow Symphony Orchestra and the University of Aberdeen Orchestra. A treasured moment occurred during a performance of “Carmina Burana” in 1998 when the guest conductor, Neeme Järvi, gave me a 3rd horn cue with his little finger. I would like to thank the editor, Bob Ashworth, for his efforts in bringing my compositions to publication. They all celebrate family events and I hope they get played again, or you can check them out on YouTube.
