the best oboe solos ever

Listening to recordings for some excerpts, I am reminded why Allan always says that they're not "excerpts," they're "the best oboe solos ever" :) Embedded in some some of the best music ever written, I might add. Though my Brahms recordings are making me nostalgic for the old HS days before Eschenbach and half the orchestra left. It makes me sad that those same players will never play all together again. Nothing against any new players, but those players are the ones who made me want to be a musician, so they'll always be special to me. At least some of them are still there :)
