Oboeblank:"Although, I am sure that we can all agree that what makes a great oboe player is what they do with their tone and not how they produce it."

Nissen:"Tone is not just tone."

D-oboe:"Though Holliger does have a more strident tone he *uses* it!"

Beautifully said!

I find Holliger very inconsistent in tone, everytime he starts to play you know it's him (with that distinctive vibrato and attack), but on some recordings it may surprise you that it doesn't sound like him at all! For instance one of his records with Klaus Thunemann of Telemann (if memory serves me right) trio sonatas where he sounds so much darker. Me and my teachers speculate that he is so technically well established that he doesn't care much about his reeds, so long as they vibrate well enough. (He himself in an interview available on the net states of his ignorance towards students who drive themselves into reed frenzies)

I really do think the recording industry has had an influence on how we all sound today, just as mentioned by someone recently on this board. I realised when recording in dry studios it is of utmost importance to use 'fatter' sounding reeds opposed to light sounding ones unless you record in a hall like the Concertgebouw or else one can sound really very strident.

For those who haven't, one must really listen to Han de Vries' playing!!!
There is an astounding record of his rendition of the Mozart Concerto available on OboeClassics that will even impress you further after you read the story behind the recording. Pity that his Schumann Romances are now out of print (i don't even know if they were ever printed), they are the most musical i have ever heard.
