[name here] feels like a nerd lookin up oboe fingerings

It says “Three Guys and a Lady” … and I see four guys. I’m so troubled by this … 😉

Once more, a bassoonist is having fun. Figures. But I just know we oboists can have fun too. I won’t stop believin’ it. Really.

This is by Arne Running. He and I have communicated in the past; he has some very clever pieces that I think are great for recitals.

Quodlibet from “Aria and Quodlibet” by Arne Running. Performed by Stephanie Patterson (Oboe), Heather McGarvey (English Horn), and Rachel Bicheler (Flash Cards) at SUNY Fredonia’s Woodwind Area Recital on 11/15/10.
