I enjoyed this. One thing that hit me, though, was the clothing. The folks in the front are dressed in period costumes. That works. But then there’s the orchestra … good old tails and all. Certainly not of this period … nor the period of the music.

I’m not sure what I’d prefer instead, but I just found it disconcerting.

We’ve come a long way from this. I wonder, though, if the shawm (that is what I’m seeing, yes?) really sounded like this? Is there any absolute way to know?

And, finally, there’s this video (labeled “Oboe Bassoon Festival Izola Slovenia”). I’ts only a slide show with the music, but you just have to love all that double reed sound, yes?
