Another Ennio Morricone tune along similar lines to 'Gabriel's Oboe' is 'La Califfa' - I've just played this in two concerts. The arrangement starts off in D Major, then modulates to F Major, then a band interlude and then the oboe comes back in and modulates and finishes off in Gb Major (6 flats).

Normally when I see key signatures of more than four flats on oboe I get very nervous, but the funny thing is all this was written in the key of F Major, but the accidentals were added and that tricked me into playing in Gb Major without even batting an eyelid.

See attachment of the copy of the solo part I made to make it as a whole instead of split between two players (as there's only me on oboe in the band I'm in).

The opinions I express are my own.
