I play woodwinds. Specifically, that would include all the common saxes (don't have a bass sax yet), clarinets from Bb soprano to EEb contra-alto, and flutes from piccolo to G alto. I generally consider my primary horn to be baritone sax, but I bounce around a lot, especially if I'm playing in pit orchestras.
By the way, if anyone wants to hear a sound clip, there's one here of a big band gig I did last June. It features me and Roger Neumann on bari saxes, with me taking the first solo.

I can play the Tenor Horn, French Horn and Baritone and also the piano. I learned to play them all as a kid, firstly the piano and then the Tenor Horn in a junior band. Having learnt to play that, a French Horn and Baritone are fairly easy to pick up.
Sadly I'm very rusty indeed as i haven't played any of those instruments in a long time - I just don't get the time any more and other pursuits have taken over when I do have some free time.
Just when I thought I could see light at the end of the tunnel, it was some B*****d with a torch bringing me more work
Sounds Very "Fugue-ish" or "Invention-ish." Nice playing though. Great dynamics! Bravo!
Oh and I just wanted to Add: My video above is of me playing Rachmaninov's 2nd Piano Concerto, 1st Movement. The etire movement is about 12 min long, way too long to take with a digital camera, and I don't have a DVR, so the sound quality is bad and it is short, but you get the general drift of things. Other videos of this piece being played by professionals are on youtube.
25 GAIsweetGAI: And Fugue-ish it should be - it's the Prelude from English Suite no.5 by J.S. Bach. Thanks.
