Hello all, I'm interested in internalizing the different tone colors and effects different instruments have (mutes, special bowing techniques, extended techniques, etc.). Does anyone know of an online database which has recorded samples of each instrument with different effects? For example, I'm looking for a site that could provide audio of a Horn in F playing muted (non-transposing), stopped, muted (transposing), and open. This would be as a substitute to someone who didn't have access to live players who could demonstrate these effects in person. Many thanks.
So, what is your favorite musical repertoire for your principle instrument? I play oboe, and I have to say, without a doubt, Ralph Vaughan Williams' Oboe Concerto here are the three movements in order. Rondo Pastorale, Minuet and Mussette, and Scherzo It's amazing!! and what I love a lot is that the peak (or what seems like a peak to me) in the third movement is pp. It's quiet but rich. So tell me! your instrument you favorite repertoire for the instrument (feel free to post more than one) and if possible, a link so I can hear it!! :)
