Have a good trip tp France Alex..(the home of all decent well bred Oboes.. )..
I think I am not alone in admiring the fact that you play such a huge amount of woodwind..Doubling is more common I think in the USA, I know several people who like you are highly adept at it..
I also hope you have a good week at Dartington, I know it very well as I grew up there in the Village, its a wonderful magical place, I do reccomend you pop into Totnes, its a lovely town full of artists and hippies (yes there are still some Hippies floating around) the whiff of Patchouli and Joss sticks is thick in the air.. I love it..
Flobi, glad you like the D major, yes thats the one..The second movement does need some editing..especially on the tied notes, you have got to cut the tied crotchet short and breathe or you will expire..
Well today for me its studies and scales..I am working on the Bleuzet and may dip my toe into my Gillet a bit later..I have a cheap copy of the Ferling which has so many misprints its astounding, one is marked 3/4 when it is plainly 4/4, yes its that bad so I need to get a decent copy of that sometime soon..
Have a good day one and all,
