 Re: Heinz Holliger concert at 81 years

Pointless slanging at other styles than one's own is pointless and adds nothing to the discussion. Unfortunately these days, we are not treated with the same sound palate that used to be available to oboists, and many of the wonderful artists of yesteryear would not get a position these days because their sound would be outside what is considered the acceptable norm. I won't comment as to whether that is a good thing or not, but I am saddened that the world has become so standardised or polarised in so many things. As far as oboe playing is concerned, I like to hear playing and styles that are outside what we expect to hear. One of the best oboe sections I ever heard was the Israel Philharmonic in the late 60s and early 70s.... All the oboists came from different parts of the world, when national schools of playing were much more pronounced than they are today, and the oboes were of a variety of different makers, yet when they played, the teamwork was exemplary and they played as one.
