I’ve not heard this piece before. Where have I been, eh? The English hornist plays what I call “side saddle” which I used to do when I wore a dress or skirt. I now only wear pants when playing English horn. I did notice that she plays to the side with oboe as well, so it must be the way she prefers to play.

I rarely comment here on someone’s performance. I figure I’ll leave that to critics. 🙂

In any case, I sometimes wish I knew some string players who would like to do chamber music.

Too bad about the abrupt cut off.

And here’s a movement of the Krommer Oboe Quartet No. 1

Finally, the third movement of the Malcolm Arnold Quartet


  1. The Francaix-quartet is one of my absolute favourites! Great music, and really fun to play. He also wrote a wonderful trio for oboe,bassoon and piano – in case you can’t find any stringplayers to do the Francaix with, maybe that would be an option…;-)

  2. I don’t think I’ve done the trio either, Katarina. I do know a bassoonist … getting a pianist is another story!
