Interesting Music for the Weekend

Hi Everyone!

There was a time when I used to rarely listen to classical music outside rehearsals and studying parts, and I used to listen to these guys a LOT – Oboman is Jean-Luc Fillon, a French musician who plays a oboe and Cor Anglais and a few other instruments, as well as conducts. He collaborates with some pretty amazing musicians – violinists, bassoonists, trombonists, mandolin players, tuba players, etc and produces some fantastic jazz/fusion/improv music. I particularly love what he does with Michael Rabinowitz, a bassoonist.

I’ve been listening to them a lot recently. Here’s a selection of some of my favourites!

There’s lots more on YouTube, if you like this sort of thing.


I hope you have a fantastic weekend!


See you on Monday!
