    Yeah I have to play cor quite a lot when I'm on second parts.
    I alternated with another player when we were on tour this summer playing Dvorak's 9th Symphony.

    I love the cor solo in mv 2!
    The oboe solos are really good too, especially in the 1st movement.

    I'd love to perform the Dvorak :love:
    I might get a chance playing it for my school's performance of the sound of music :rolleyes: It'll probably be rubbish but the chance to play cor is wayyy to great to pass up.

    It's an easy score, you'll be fiiiiiiiiiiiiiiine.

    The Cor is in about 3 or 4 pieces I think.
    There is a cool oboe solo near the end of So Long, Farewell

    Yeah I've already had my book to practise the oboe parts. There's actually a fair few cor parts in mine, not that I'm complaining
    There's a few nice lines in my favourite things as well if I remember right.
    I like being a bit of an oboe nerd sometimes

    It's weird how commonly and to great effect, that the oboe is used, yet hardly anyone out of the music world knows what it is.

    I think in the music world pretty much everyone knows what an oboe is, it's a really important part of the orchestra and gets a lot of solos in pieces.

    Most general people have never heard of it though, and describe it as "OH YEAHHHH THE ONE THAT LOOKS LIKE A CLARINET"

    Oooh the clarinet thing is really annoying.
    Although more understandable than some moron asking me is my saxophone was a cello once :/
    I gave up on the world at that point.
