Mary was wonderfully supportive all the way through. It’s hard enough just being the wife of a neurotic oboe player, somebody who’s constantly going from highs to lows depending on the reed situation, and getting terribly discouraged and feeling that he can’t go on and play a concert, that it’s too terrifying. It’s been tough on her. But she’s a very strong person. I think it must be very difficult for musicians who don’t have that support at home, who have an unstable life. There are so many musicians in our orchestra who, I feel, don’t have that kind of support.

-Ray Still

I read that quote and more here.
