I'm waiting for the first person to analyze and criticize her embouchure/mouthpiece position.
She sounds great.
A big hit song from the 60s.
And NO it is NOT Taps.
She emotes like a clarinetist. And the sound is HEAVILY colored by the recording technique. They added a lot of volume and reverb.
But....having said that, for a 13 year old kid, I'm impressed.
This shows a bit more closely what she actually sounds like. And it looks like she's moved closer to the middle.
YouTube - Melissa Venema plays live Haydn
A true entertainer. Decent chops.
I just don't like it when the music gets ignored. Il Silencio is her world, not Haydn.
To be fair though, as a 14 year old player, she's pretty well rounded and played the Haydn pretty well for her age. A few more years of seasoning and she'll be playing much more musically even on pieces like the Haydn Concerto. It will be interesting to see where she winds up going with it.
Pretty cool vid. EVERY trumpet player I know has e-mailed me this.
Even now, she's a whole bunch better than me.
I'm wondering if Tine Thing Helseth influenced this young lady. We could be witnessing the beginning of a Scandinavian Stampede of female trumpet players.
Patrick, I don't have a problem with electronic reverb. Haydn and his contemporaries wrote reverb into their music. It wouldn't sound right without it.
How could they write reverb into the music? That would be highly dependent upon the venue where the music was being performed prior to the age of electronics, amplification and effects. Do you mean vibrato?
