    I'm playing in Sibelius 5 in Summer (Horn). Going to be fun, lots of beautiful horn stuff in there (last movement! *eargasm*)

    Ahh, I love the 3rd movement, especially when the horns come in. Hopefully my school orchestra will play it some day

    tbf Clarinet >> Oboe :yes:

    :p:
    Agreed, up to the point where the oboist gets a good tone. Then the oboe is far superior. I really want to learn the oboe, but I'm content with the clarinet (which is still amazing :cool: )

    Hmm, I do prefer the Cor anglais to the Oboe, and the bassoon for that matter.

    The thing about the Oboe is that the Strauss Oboe Concerto exists, and therefore we must be thankful for the Oboe.

    BUT, is there a wide range of both classical AND modern jazz/swing repetoire for the oboe? the clarinet's very versatile :cool: . Still really want to learn tho oboe though (don't ask why, but I just want to play Gabriel's Oboe, I've always wanted to be able to play it on the oboe)

    The oboe has baroque music, the clarinet does not. :p:
    There is actually a small following for jazz oboe actually, (I personally think it sounds stupid, but then again I do play sax :p: )

    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.
    I was once asked if my cello was an oboe. Maybe they know something we don't :ninja:

    I play the Timple and Melodeon. I have only once met someone who knew what the former was.

    The name Timple always makes me smile. It just brings to mind a lighthearted children's adventure, starring Timple, a small bear always getting himself in a pickle.

    Fine. I'll switch to Charango. You can't make a joke out of a Charango

    Thank you :o:

    Mind you I haven't got a Charango yet. It's next on my list of instruments to buy.
