Course contents

This course provides student with all skills needed in playing the oboe. A path is sought to enable the students to master the oboe at the highest technical level, in intonation, ebouchure, tone quality and performance. All demands placed on the musician, explained in Oboe 1& 2 are, using properly selected etudes and recitals, further developed. Also attention is given to the tongue as a very important phenomenon of refined setting of tone or quick staccato. If there are difficulties, from Oboe 1, correction manners are sought. Here all that tongue techniqe has to offer is taught; individual types of setting from the most subtle to accented or forced, in staccato but not ony speed but also length of individual staccato notes. It is possible to play from detache to staccatissimo. New knowledge is practiced not only on etudes but also recital compositions are selected so that that knowledge is used in concert activity. More demanding etudes are selected - K. Mille, H. Brod. In recital compositions, preference is given to - R. Schumann, B. Britten, J.S. Bach, F. Poulenc, G. P. Telemann.
