The Met’s principal trumpet on his long, long waitsmain
David Krauss, principal trumpet of the Metropolitan Opera, opens up about the differences and difficulties of playing opera, as opposed to symphonies.
Long waits, endless repetitions of the same few pieces and, every now and then, transcendence.
‘Turandot is one of the only opera that feels like the last page of Mahler One.’
The best part comes when David reveals what he received from each of his teachers.
Essential viewing, even for string players.
