Who created the oboe and why?

… I guess it’s all about the instrumentation. So the Beatles are pop, but if you play their music in an orchestra it’s then classical. Um … right?

Today, local Singaporean, Ian Low, has just released the world’s first classical music album that was recorded and produced entirely using only an iPad and a software app, Apple’s own GarageBand. It is entitled The Eternal Broth.
The album is a rearrangement of an earlier instrumental work by Mr. Low, Father, which was also done on the iPad. Father is also a musical story about a pair of brothers and their struggles to find their mark in their careers and lives, all revolving around their father’s simple but humble soup food tall.
While the earlier album featured modern and contemporary pop arrangements and instrumentation, The Eternal Broth uses only classical and acoustic instrumentation found on the GarageBand app to evoke a different dimension to the original pop tracks on Father. It is the world’s first classical music album to be produced in this manner.
