>> HI, MY NAME IS MARK ABBOTT.

I'M THE FRENCH HORNIST WITH THE DETROIT SYMPHONY

ORCHESTRA, AND WE PLAYED A CONCERT BY JOHN

WILLIAMS TONIGHT. JOHN WILLIAMS WROTE FOR THE

FRENCH HORN JUST IN A WAY THAT NO OTHER COMPOSURE

MAYBE SINCE MAHLER HAS WRITTEN, JUST FANTASTIC WORK

FOR THE HORNE, AND IT'S A LITTLE UNIQUE THAT WE DO ONE

COMPOSER ON ANY GIVEN CONCERT, BUT IT SORT OF

DEPICTED HIS LIFE AS A COMPOSER ALL THE WAY FROM I

THINK ONE OF HIS FIRST COMPOSITIONS, "JAWS", WHICH

WAS 1970s ALL THE WAY UP TO HARRY POTTER AND ONE OF THE

MOST RECENT, I BELIEVE, WAS "LINCOLN", SO WE HAD SORT OF

A CHRONOLOGICAL, YOU KNOW, ORDER OF WHAT HE WROTE

DURING HIS LIFE. ONLY SCRATCHED THE SURFACE,

AS A MATTER OF FACT. A UNIQUE CONCERT.

I LOVED EVERY SECOND.
