In this class we will study how to form an interpretation of the Strauss Oboe Concerto. We will discuss how to tell a musical story, how to deal with the endurance issues, how to practice the technique, how to discover and communicate the emotions Strauss is trying to convey. How to build confidence to perform your best under pressure. We will have four students each playing one movement. The 2nd movement person will do the first cadenza and the 3rd movement person will do the second cadenza.
