Anyway, both symphonies were quite good. The funniest part came during the second movement of Symphonie Fantastique, when the oboe player had to go offstage to achieve the appropriately eerie tone. During the third movement the oboe player returned, and to reach his seat had to move the English Horn player’s music stand, and the English Horn player shot the oboe player a look that plainly said “if I were not waiting intently for the conductor’s cue I would kill you where you stand!”
