Baron, about french players.

Their sound has come a long way in the past 50 years or so. I happen to have studied with 2 Pierlot students. One (that also studied with Bourgue) still has his "old school" french sound, which is kind of bright (well...REALLY bright). The other one -a well known orchestra player- also had lessons with John Mack (and Holliger), and although he dosent conform to the "traditional american sound" he has the perfect balance between the old school french brightness and the american roundness (but not as hollow), he kind of sounds like the "modern" french players, dark and rich with a touch of brightness. He decided to take the best of both styles and create his own playing.

I also think that more and more American players go and study with european teachers and vice versa, and that we are converging towards a more homogenous sound, which is kind of sad...but this subject has already been covered here. Anyhoo, lots of great french oboists have recorded good albums (from Pierre Pierlot to David Walter), they are easy to find in good music stores (at least here in Canada...) and are worth listening to, just to know what else is going on in the oboe world!
