“Hallway Oboe”?? So a bassoon played in a hallway becomes an oboe? Say what?!

For something that is, perhaps, a bit more fun, here is the Bocal Majority (is this a bassoon quartet, or four hallway oboes?):

  1. No, that would be three hallway oboes and a contra-hallway-oboe. I think? I love this, especially the reed-only stuff – it’s been a few years since I did The Mikado, can anyone confirm that they were silent during (what I’ve always assumed was) a really challenging little bassoon snippet?
