Oboe Master Class
« on: October 27, 2019, 04:01:04 PM »
So I attended an Oboe master class today at  the Mannes School of Music in Manhattan.

I was struck by how I was able to pick out the topics/issues the master musician would comment on by just listening to the performers.

Good music performance is the ability to Express the music with technical competence.  But it is the creative expression that drives the performance:  the dynamics, nuance, rubato, tone quality/flexibility, playfulness, forcefulness  - the so ever so soft ppp and outstanding dramatic fff  etc.

It was so evident -yet so difficult to do!
