I sometimes just crack up at what people write. (Other times I get fairly ticked off.)

  • I play Ferling too 😉
    You have grat sound 😉

  • keep it up. u have a great sound. My only comment is to play more with the music and create more suspense with each tamper. little more dynamics, and u’ll be scary good!

An old song made with Miroslav Philharmonik. It’s not meant to be playable, so don’t mind the pitchbends on the oboe and the distorted cellos

Heh … we can pitchbend, thank you very much. Pitchbends don’t make something unplayable.

Sometimes reading the “info” part of a video at YouTube cracks me up. Sometimes it’s just too darn cute (younger students). Sometimes merely puzzling.

“Me playing the oboe that needs to go in for adjustment, through a bad quality microphone!”

“I’ve been playing oboe for a little over a year now, so I dunno how great it sounds.”

“I love my oboe.”

“For the more advanced oboe reed destroyers, use your creativity!!” (There are a number of videos of people destroying oboe reeds. Go figure.)

“I messed up a few times, but I’ve only been playing the oboe for about 9 months.”

For those who have made their apologies for their playing: “Bravi tutti! You are well on your way to becoming a professional oboist.” 😉

And then there are those who scare me. (I’d hate to see that reed go through the soft palette. Ouch!)

Finally, an oboist in the recording studio, playing an arrangement of “Angels We Have Heard On High”. I can’t say I love the arrangement, but she does a good job. I like seeing the camera focus on the hands, too!
