The most scary oboe song. Happy Halloween! ?
Looking for an oboe song for Halloween? We have the perfect one:
Sergei Rachmaninov – The Isle of the Dead
A plaintive oboe and gloomy clarinets depict the sounds of the oars of Charon cutting through the waters of the river Styx in the solemn opening phrases of Rachmaninov’s symphonic poem. The music transports our immortal souls to the edge of the underworld in this spooky piece.
By the way, we have given our oboe reeds a scary touch to celebrate Halloween too. What do you think?
