Why WOULD anybody want to play the oboe?!?
I have had the great fortune to see Joseph Robinson in person a couple of times in the last few years right here in Colorado! The first time at CSU's OboeRAMa, and the second time at a master class hosted by CU-Boulder. It appears he has had his wonderful attitude for quite some time! He has also, of course, always been a fabulous player. I have not had the opportunity to meet most of the other people featured in the video, but I have heard Sherry Sylar play live and admire her playing very much. I love this clip for its complete honesty: from the trials and tribulations of dealing with our temperamental reeds, to confessions of love for the oboe's unique sound.
