I first heard the term "dark" used to describe oboe sound sometime in the
late 50's. I asked for a definition, got one, and have never had any
difficulty in understanding what was meant the countless times since then
that I've heard the term used; nor have I ever perceived any
ambiguity in the way the terms dark and light are used. I suppose I could
find alternate words to label the tonal characteristics concerned, but
was never until now aware of there being any controversy about this.
