I’m at an IDRS conference this week, which is geek for International Double Reed Society, which also happens to still be geek for “Bassoon and Oboe Convention”. It’s been wonderful, if not a little overwhelming. I traveled with a bassoonist friend and an oboist friend and really, I couldn’t have chosen better companions for this trip (if in fact I had chosen). I am having a great time and hearing some amazing music. I’m hearing a few stinkers as well, but the great has far outweighed the bad. I’ve bought lots of music, a little bit of cane, a couple of gadgets and most of all, a brand new, unbelievably expensive...
