Quote of the Day

"Contrary to popular belief, Eine Kleine Nachtmusik was actually originally written for 6 saxophones. Yes, Mozart wrote it for saxophones, though there was a slight problem. The saxophone wasn't invented until... 1832... which gave Mozart about 50-60 years to write the music. Fortunately, we're only going to play he first movement, because that's the only one that was originally written for saxophones. Mozart got stuck afterwards and wrote the rest of the piece for strings. So now, here is the original version of Eine Kleine Nachtmusik!"

Oh. My. God. Please tell me I am imagining this and that the bringer of all evil otherwise known as Mr Gill is NOT your quote of the day! Actually, saying that, it was quite amusing lol.

Mr Gill was quote of the day. It was one of the better things he'd said and it would have been incorrect if I'd not used it as quote of the day! I have heard his GCSE Performing Arts group singing a song about him though. They called him 'Gilly'

...and then Stephen Sondheim went and mistranslated it. Or I'm being an idiot again and talking about one thing when your quote of the day happens to be about another.

Yes, you may ignore me.

I dont know.... The above quote was actually from my old head of music last night. He's always been somewhat strange but that was amusing.
