what a great age we live in now. The level of oboe playing
around the world couldn't be better. One of the benefits to
this is the number of fantastic oboe recordings that are available.
of these you don't have to go out to the record store to buy.
Just search online and
have found two places which together seem to have just about
every classical cd in print. The first place is called ArkivMusic.com,
the second is Amazon.com
online record store has about the largest recording collection
I have seen to date. The great service that they offer is
their search feature. You can search by conductor, piece,
composer, artist performer, and even by ensemble. I had a
great time just browsing everything. Just click on the banner
to begin a very interesting search.
those guys don't have what you are looking for, check out
They will probably have it. You can search by artist or whichever
way you want to.
great thing about this famous online store, is that you can
listen to parts of many of the cd's they sell for free. Just
type in the name of the oboist you would like to find and
do a search that way. I found that about half of what I was
looking for had some sound clips available to listen to.
