Nicholas Daniel has been blogging about the Prague Oboe Competition, at which he is a judge. Here is the first entry.

The four finalists of the Prague oboe competition are :
Ricardo Barbosa (Br)
Johannes Grosso (Fr)
Marc Lachat (Fr)
Philibert Perrine (Fr)
‘Honorable mention’ have been awarded to :
Andrey Godik (Rus)
Andrew Kawai (Australia)

I am currently listening to Ricardo Barbosa, a finalist in the competition. As always I’m impressed. Humbled too. No way could I do what these fine young plyaers do. As I tell people: I’m a team player, not a soloist!
