Note to You, A; Oboe, The

12/26/1999

It’s the first instrument you hear when the orchestra begins to tune. But it’s more than just a tuning machine. The oboe, with its mournful tone, gives us some of the most beautiful melodies in music. We’ll hear some of these, as BSO oboist Ralph Gomberg joins Virginia Eskin to talk about the oboe.
