How to go beyond the learning plateau

Newborn oboes

  • Thank you very much for your recommendations on easy pieces for the complete beginner.
    I practice diligently from the oboe school recommended by Allegro and I've also started Bernd's first Boismortier pieces. I enjoy it so much that I look forward to practicing every day and hardly want to stop - as long as my lips join in. My family no longer complains about the sound .

    Unfortunately, the cello is currently a bit short. Let's see what my teacher said about the Bach Suite on Thursday - somehow I just feel like I'm on a learning platform. The rapid progress with the oboe is somehow more fun.

    Best wishes

  • Years ago there were some recordings with interesting string quartets on cpo, for all those who want to hear strangers

  • So our oboes are equally difficult.
    At some point you can play duos for cello and oboe (this can be very nice with a common recording device), could at least be a help not to neglect the cello too much.
    Edit: By the way, be assured of my envy that you can play the cello. So don't be sorry to have reached a learning platform, I would like to be there too.

    What is the purpose of the flap at the bottom of the goblet, which is present on the Josef AS as on practically all other oboes, but not on my 5000?

    Puuuhhh - it takes a load off my heart that you still like the magazine although there is not as much baroque in it as I wrongly thought at first

    And this is how it has to be: look forward to practicing and not want to stop

    Since I don't know either the Josef AS or the 5000, I can only make a guess: does your 5000 have the deep b? If not, she's for it.
    If so: then the key on your oboe is probably just higher up - that is, on the middle section.


    @ Lothar, thanks for the listening tip - I'll be sure to check it out.
    Yesterday I listened to the nonet - that's nice, but not something I would really want to hear more than once.
    Many greetings - Allegro

  • That means that you are already making good progress - congratulations!


    I think the cello is great too! I envy everyone who is good at it (as well as piano). But, as you have probably noticed by now, the oboe is also a very expensive instrument. Unfortunately, there is no more room for anything else. Especially not if you only have the weekend right. Sooner or later, I'm afraid you will have to accept that one of the two is just running alongside. But if your respective teacher accepts that and especially if it doesn't bother you, everything is fine.

  • The wind quintet Op. 81 by George Onslow is very beautiful. That was one of the compulsory pieces at the 2014 ARD music competition for wind quintets. I especially liked the French quintet "Klarthe".

  • So, the lecturers at "www.blaeserurlaub.at" are planned.

    I'm really looking forward to participating in the 2nd week!

    I hear the nonet from Onslow regularly and with growing enthusiasm, including on this great recording



    That is only topped by Louise Farrenc's nonet.

  • Per lecturer this is m.W. about 9-12 people max. (and then again divided between weeks 1 and 2)
    The lower the degree of concern, the higher the entertainment value!
  • But that's still a lot of participants. How many hours of lessons are there per day and, above all, what is being done (of course, I mean especially with the participants for oboe)?

  • Unfortunately, I cannot answer that because this is my first time (with the bassoon). But take a look under "Procedure".

    That sounds really interesting. Especially because the instrumental lessons are given by absolute professionals in their respective subject. And I think breathing exercises and autogenic training as a supplement make absolutely sense. However, the fun is not cheap at 380 euros, because then accommodation and food are extra. Did you have to take care of it yourself or do you have to arrange something?

  • @Allegro: I'll be happy to report back in September!

    Your workshop is something advanced, but I found this very interesting, because I always count so sloppily ...

    @ Rosewood: I think 380 ocken for a whole week is not too much. My teacher thinks that with such lecturers you have to pay for it only for 1 weekend. Of course, the DUS-SZG flight, the rental car and the accommodation are expensive. I have booked the former and the latter in advance, but support is offered with regard to accommodation. Everything is on the homepage.

    This is a resonance key, which is supposed to improve the intonation of the low Bb (and if the so-called "double cup connection" is present also the low Bb). With most oboes, the two notes mentioned are still too low, but not so badly too deep anymore.

    Best regards
