As not a traditional student of the American Tradition (I wrote my dissertation on a Western --Hollywood-- style of oboe playing, which is what my teacher taught me here in North Carolina), I'm excited about the idea. There is no reason that the two different playing styles can't blend. Almost no one plays on the style that I use, and I think it works out fine in all of the ensembles that I play in.

I also have a friend that plays German reeds, and we play well together (me using my non-traditional American style reeds). She's honestly one of my favorite oboists to play with because of it.

I was taught to be malleable with my color to match the current playing situation, not just 1st/2nd oboe, but even blending with flute, clarinet, bassoon, violin, trumpet, etc. I think that we all have to be able to do that at any point. My curiosity is peaked at how the 2nd player works to achieve this task. I find that playing 2nd is much harder than playing 1st. When I'm playing first, I can lead with the sound I want, when I'm playing second, even in exposed parts, I still have to mimic the other player's sound to some extent.
