 Trill fingerings
Author: EaubeauHorn

I was surprised to find that my oboe does not trill on some of the trill fingerings provided in the chart I have. (Schuring again.) Apparently these fingerings are for Lorees only, and I have a Rigoutat. I found an online chart with multiple alternate trill fingerings, and did find ones that work. I did not know that different makers of oboes had different mechanisms. I'm perfectly happy with my Rigoutat, which is a fine example of the Expression, was a bargain when I bought it, and has the best forked F of any oboe I've ever played. It also works better for my small hands than a Loree, even though the difference in reach is minor.

That said, some of the trills have one note rather drastically out of tune, and I can't get both notes in tune at the same time; is this common? Is it a problem with me, or is it just the way it is? I can see doing a "turn" with the trill note off key, but a whole trill, um, would rather not.
