… plaintive cries of the woodwinds in the pastoral “Scene in the Fields” …. (RTWT)

Gee, do you think that maybe an ENGLISH HORN PLAYS in that movement?

Ya think? ;-)

And … now don’t laugh at me, please … for some reason the word “plaintive” just bugs me. And the reason makes absolutely no sense at all (but since when did this oboist make sense?). I think it has something to do with the word containing “plain”. Heh. Silly, no? Sort of like how the word “limpid” also bugs me I guess.

Anyone else have such irrational issues with some words? I know I have others … I’ll have to start a list!
