The soloist was so self-centered that when she played with an oboe solo it sounded as if she thought she had the lead.

I read it here.

I guess that could be why the soloist (on piano) covered the oboe. Or perhaps she was asked to bring out her (solo) part. I just thought that was a bit odd to write in a review. Who knows if she’s self-centered, you know? (And calling it “the lead” … um … well, that just sounds funny to me. But I’m funny, so whatever.)

Or maybe I just like to defend people who get bad reviews.


  1. So when you have a solo you’re not supposed to be heard? Wow, I’ve been doing it wrong for decades now…

  2. Ah – I misread it, never mind either way, sorry.
