I used to think the oboe wasn’t a nice sounding instrument, but this has changed my mind! Guess I shouldn’t judge from the synthesised version on my keyboard lol

-“thelightisahead” – found on youtube, where you can hear and see Gabriel’s Oboe, the pretty little piece by Ennio Morricone, being played.

I’ve had the link to this video up before. Notice how the oboist holds her oboe? I’m a “close to the body” sort of oboist, so I find this fascinating to see. She plays beautifully; I wouldn’t sound like that if I were holding my oboe that way.

Thanks to Jill Cathey for this quote. :-)
