There are some sections in tenor clef - I can't remember where exactly as I only had a quick look before we started playing (I was on oboe/cor sat next to the bassoonist).

People do it (I don't, cause I don't play second oboe much, despite my preferring it it to the screamissimo register), but I don't get playing Oboe/Cor in the same like... piece. It sounds awful. I can't play Cor without at god 30 minute break from the oboe, and going back to oboe I need like ten minutes to basically do mouth cagles.

A nasty bit of it is in tenor clef. I played clarinet on "Oliver!"so i was right next to the bassoon also. He did a lot of complaining. Yeah it's scored a good bit in C clef and I remember him complaining that it was quite high. I didn't hear it, but bassoon never sounds stressed to me. It's a beautiful instrument. My hands won't do it, and since I have gotten older and my hands have problems, they REALLY will not do all that thumb business. Apparently I am made for that awful, fickle thing we call oboe, because it's all scaled in the front, and I have bad thumbs now.

Anyway, yeah a lot of it is pretty high and in Tenor Clef.

American Oboist. I currently play on a Rigoutat Riec. She is beautiful.
