I could have sworn I put this up some time ago, but I can’t find it. But even if I did post it earlier, it’s well worth a repeat, don’t you think?

Beethoven’s Variations on “La ci darem la mano” by Mozart

Joakim Dam Thomsen, first oboe; Rixon Thomas, second oboe; Sven Buller, English horn
Note from the video:
This is a live unedited recording from the small stage of Operaen in Copenhagen. Recorded on the 9th May 2010. This was one of 3 pieces on the program of The Royal Danish Orchestra’s (Det Kongelige Kapel) regular chamber music concerts.

(Thanks to @quillnote on Twitter for reminding me of this great video!)

As far as I’m concerned oboe should only be used to charm snakes

If you don’t tune an oboe it sounds like a dying duck-horse. #musicthings
