The Eloquent Oboe is a history of the hautboy, the oboe of the Baroque period. It reflects recent interest in this instrument, which was the first of the woodwinds to join with strings in creating the new orchestra, and had by the end of the 20th century again become a regular presence on the concert scene. Between 1640 and 1760 this type of oboe underwent dramatic changes in both function and physical form, and the majority of its solo and chamber repertoire appeared. Haynes examines in detail the hautboy's structure, its players, makers, and composers, issues of performing style and period techniques, how and where the instrument was played, and who listened to it.

About the Author:


Recently retired as a peformer, Bruce Haynes is Associate Professor of Music, University of Montreal, and author, The Eloquent Oboe: A History of the Hautboy from 1640 to 1760 (OUP, 2001) and The End of Early Music: A Period Peformer's History of Music for the Twenty-First Century (OUP, 2007)

Review:

`Haynes' choice of title is splendid; and he succeeds admirably at reinforcing the concept of the oboe's eloquence.'
Journal of the American Musical Instrument Society

`Bruce Haynes has already produced two invaluable reference works: his oboe bibliography and his thesis on pitch. This makes a third. Players will obviously need to read it, but it has much to offer all involved in baroque music'
Early Music Review

`The quantity of information on instruments, makers, players, social context and music given here is phenomenal, and it is all coherently set out - it is easy to find ones way around without consulting index or contents list.'
Early Music Review, no.76

`Well organised and ... easy to use for reference without recourse to the index ... original'
Early Music Review, no 76
