I have an accompanist for my recital, and a hold for Old Cabell on just about the perfect date. April 19th, afternoon recital.
...*knock on wood*, just for good measure.
A few cool things:
The John Ferrillo Orchestral Excerpts for Oboe book: Oboe parts reproduced as they look on page (including page breaks), accompanied by a blurb that explains any mistakes or controversies in that part, and with piano reductions of the orchestra part. Can be found off of Amazon, as well as other places.
www.store.jewelsinfiber.com: Check out their #18 nylon thread- they have tons of colors.
Tim Goplerud: he's a contemporary composer, and he has some awesome English horn music. The coolest I've heard is a duet for English horn and double bass.
