About this show

A man wakes up at forty to a broken marriage, a beckoning bedsit, and the realisation that he has done nothing to make himself memorable. Then he clambers into the attic… After a lay-off of 25 years, Jasper Rees seeks redemption via the sixteen feet of treacherous brass tubing he never mastered in his youth. Resuming his old French horn, he sets himself an impossible task: to perform a Mozart concerto in front of a paying audience of horn fanatics. "Don't do it," says his mentor. "It takes nerves of steel to play the French horn in public!" But for Jasper, there's no choice. It's now. Or it's never. Starring Jonathan Guy Lewis (Alphabetical Order, Hampstead 2009), I Found My Horn is adapted from the book by Jasper Rees, serialised on Radio 4's Book of the Week.
