Discusses the modern version of the oboe and the many forms it has taken during its evolution. Shows the oboe's ancient Egyptian ancestor--an unrecognizable prototype of the instrument played today. Discusses the more familiar-looking oboe, developed in the 17th century, within the context of its predecessors: the English horn, the heckelphone, and the contra bassoon. Illustrates the oboe's versatility in musical composition with works from Lully to Strauss.
