SEAL

Are we are missing Seal and "Kiss from a rose" with David Theodore playing his Howarth arn't we ?? That was a rather large oboe intro and solo in the middle.


ICE HOUSE

Also.. for an FYI there is an Australian Iva Davies who could be the biggest selling recorded "oboist" ever .. like 10 gold records etc.....

He was the front man for Ice House, an 80's Australian Band with hits like "Great Southern Land" and also one called "Man of Colours" which has oboe and Cor played by the Lead Singer ( Iva - studied Oboe at the Sydney Conservatorium prior to turning to Electro-Pop).

I have seen a video where they band is doing a stadium concert ( like 50,000 people) and Iva is in a cherry picker over the audience with a micophone and an oboe in hand.. he does a very large oboe solo with synthesiser backing - very 80's and rather pop meets art music ( not so rock & roll), but some one has done it !!

He could also be the only ever "Oboist Sex-Symbol" with 80's hair and tight jeans with an oboe ??

I once did a two day class at the conservatoirum ( in my younger years) and Iva was there, I went home and told my sister that that guy form that band ?? ( I had no idea at the time) was at the class.. She really wanted to learn the oboe, that weekend and meet this pop star.... !!!

He now does composition for movies, such as the Rusel Crowe Film Master & Commander and works with modern dance companies on compositions..
