So … Mozart’s Oboe Quartet … how do you play the grace notes? In this video the oboist turns the grace note with two sixteenths into a triplet, as does this player at what looks to be a student recital(?). I’ve always played a true grace note, as has another oboist-friend of mine. I’m curious about other oboists. Do tell!

    Well, when I used to play the flute, I played them like Jennifer does (I couldn’t open the first video). For what it’s worth…

    Hmmm … the video opens for me. Weird.

    So you actually played this on the flute? Double weird! 😉
