Dusting off the instrument he last played as a gormless teen, 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 balls of Sheffield steel to play the French horn in public!’ But Jasper he’s knows damned if he does, and he’s damned if he doesn’t…
