Rough night at the opera.

Werther really doesn’t have a lot of oboe, and has nothing at all that is difficult. But it’s a tricky little thing. Part of the difficulty is with the edition we have; Kalmus is often full of errors, but this one is just a pain to read. Sometimes I can’t tell if I am seeing a sharp sign or a natural. How annoying is that?

But really, it’s just that the work isn’t falling together easily. Not for us, anyway. Good thing we have three more rehearsals!

Now if only I could put together some reeds that will behave.

That’ll be the day ….
