 Re: Intonation difficulty in the simplest case
Author: Dan Shusta

The psychoacoustician stated: "Pitch is defined in terms of WHAT IS HEARD".

Your oboist friend stated: "We perceive the sound at a different pitch than it is physically...".

To me, they are saying basically the same thing. Pitch, being a perceived sound, cannot be measured, whereas, frequency, of course, can be accurately measured with various instruments.

A lot about "pitch" can be gleaned from the following in Wikipedia:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pitch_(music)

However, when I Googled: "Can people hear different pitches of the same frequency"? I was quite enlightened by the simplistic reply found in the following article: https://knowledgenuts.com/2016/03/31/why-everyone-hears-the-same-sounds-differently/

Succinctly stated: Different brain structures "perceive" different pitches and therefore what is "in tune" to one person may, indeed, be "out of tune" to another.

(Just my interpretation of all that I have read.)

Thanks, Tony, for bringing this up. I learned a lot.
