Elvisconde, I would love to hear what direction you are going in with your oboe. Would it be possible to get a recording of the sound that you've been working on?

I think that every great oboist listed here has mastered the sound that he or she set out to do. Beautiful music, beautiful oboe playing, and musical interpretation, is very personal. We may not understand every oboist' decisions on how to perform on the instrument, but then again, that's what makes the oboe so fascinating to listen to - that 100 masters can take the same instrument and turn it in 100 different directions.

Personally, I love hearing the differences in all of these master's performances. If they all evolved in the same direction that would be incredibly boring. At that point, we may as well just have the sound computer generated.

We can say that the European oboists sound better - that they sound less like a trumpet or a flute or what ever, than they did in the past but if we do that, then we should also applaud the fact that they took an oboe and experimented with it in different directions in the past. All of these musicians are and were brilliant artists. Let's not ever forget that. We may not appreciate their efforts but we should always applaud them.
