The Society for Classical and Authentic Music

Closely allied with the Society for High Art Music, of course, but the lineup here is six oboes and six bassons. In this extract ensemble are enjoying 'dubbeltrubble', a merry Dixieland tune, but are directed by the conductor to defer to the first bassoonist, who wishes to essay a cadenza. Regrettably, perhaps, this coincides with ritual actions involving an out-of-tune low Eb and some other sounds…
