Off the shelf: Hoffnung 5

This wonderful drawing is another one from the String section, though I seem to remember, from my days in the school orchestra, that we referred to the piano as a percussion instrument – perhaps that was a joke to upset the pianist.

I won’t be posting anything tomorrow as I’m off to the funeral of my uncle David, who died last week, and a very early start is required. He was a musician and teacher of music at Nottingham University and wrote several books on the subject.
He was kind-hearted with a good sense of humour and a very loud laugh. I think he would have enjoyed these Hoffnung drawings.
