Performance Lists

About 6 months after I came to Vienna, I had the idea that it might be cool to keep a running tally of how many performances I've done in the Staatsoper and in the Philharmonic. So I went back through my calendar dating back to my very first performance (Verdi's Simone Boccanegra on September 5th, 2007), and established a few spreadsheets that kept track of various things. I have kept up with it ever since then, and now with the advent of Google Docs I have published them all to the web so that anyone interested can view them. 

Opera Performance Tally: This is just what it sounds like... a list of all the operas and ballets I've performed in the Vienna State Opera, and how many times I've done each one. You'll see a column for 1st trombone, 2nd trombone, and then the total number. 

Philharmonic Concert Blocks: This sheet has the most info on it. It is a record of my Philharmonic performances by concert block, divided by conductor and arranged in reverse chronological order. With this sheet I keep track of how many concerts I've played in the Philharmonic, what the repertoire was, where I toured, and with which colleagues I played. 

Philharmonic Works Performed: This one is just which pieces I've played with the Philharmonic, and how many times on 1st trombone (or assistant) and on 2nd trombone (or other instruments i.e. euphonium & bass trumpet).   I've got it listed alphabetically by composer. 

DISCLAIMER - I do not at all intend to reduce the many wonderful musical experiences I've had in the VPO and the State Opera down to a set of numbers and statistics.   I simply think it's interesting to look back over time and see in an organized way the works I've had the privilege to perform.

The lists will be updated regularly, probably about once a month. Check back often to see the tallies climb! And as always, I would love your feedback & suggestions.
