Day 262 — Rehearsing at Schönbrunn
20-April-1972 (Donnerstag–Thur.)


Viele arbeit heute mit dem Horn. Hat sehr gut gegangen. Vielmals besser als die andere Tagen. Ich habe auch gespielt eine Probe—
Don Passacali—gespielt in dem Schönbrunn Schloss Theatre. Orchester so-so. Die singen, sehr gut.

Zweimal Buster Keaton an abend. Das selbe.


In German.


A lot of work today with the horn. It went very well. Much better than the other day. I also played a
rehearsal (probe) of Don Pasquale, in the orchestra of the Schloss Schönbrunn Theater. Orchestra was ok. The singing, very good.

(zweimal = twice, not two) Buster Keaton films at night. The same.


Rehearsing Don Pasquale. I don’t remember this, but apparently I’m playing horn in a rehearsal of Donizetti’s comic opera, Don Pasquale, in the orchestra for the theater at Schönbrunn Palace. That must have been nice. I suppose if I were writing in English, I would have said more about it. Was I playing alongside Prof. Gabler just for a rehearsal? Or was it a student orchestra?
