Hi, i am looking for songs which everybody knows, and in which you can hear an oboe clearly. I know only one now: Old and Wise. If you can just post some titles of famous songs with oboe solo's in it, i would be happy.

This is recent song but the oboe solo is magnificent, short but sweet. It is called October by Eric Whitacre. I hope you enjoy listening to it on this website...try the lo-fi and hi-fi buttons if you can't hear it. http://www.soundclick.com/bands/songinfo.cfm?bandid=292674&songID=2172069&from=downloadsong.cfm&referer=http://www.google.ca/search?hl=en&q=mp3+downloads+for+October+by+Eric+Whitacre&meta=

Your right. Db to Eb grace note sux...but it sounds great. You just have to get used to the right hand fingerings. :)

Here are ones I can think of off the top of my head..

-In First Suite in Eb by Holst there is a mini-solo in the first movement, and solo part with first clarinet and first coronet throughout the entire second movement.

-In the second movement of Second Suite in F major by Holst there is a nice slow solo.

-In the second movement of (English) Folk Song Suite by Vaughan Williams there is also a nice solo, as well as a neat little woodwind trio in the third movement.

-In Scenes from the "Louvre" the 4th movement "Nativity Paintings" is a lovely oboe solo that I enjoyed very much. this I uploaded onto the internet, it's just so pretty, I hope you enjoy at least listening to it "http://www.blogupload.com/12943/07_The_Nativity_Paintings.wma"

~ Some orchestral pieces:
-Oboe solo of "Polovetzian {sp?} Dances"
-Oboe solo in "William Tell Overture"
-"Scene" from Swan Lake
-"Morning Mood" from Peer Gynt

Those are all very well known pieces, even if not immediately recognizeable by title, and are very lovely. I hope this helped you.
(If you would like recordings of the solos, I have them on my computer and would be more than happy to upload them for you to hear. )

Thanks for the suggestions guys, ill start looking for them right away. Actually, the Peter and the Wolf solo was the reason why i chose to play the oboe. Most of the other ones youve mentioned ive never heard of (except Swan Lake) but ill see for myself if their nice. More titles are always welcome.

Edit: The one from Eric Whitacre was beautiful!

The Nativity Paintings was beautiful too, only very short.

I have to say, I also love the song "October".

For some less-traditional oboe solos, I've been compiling a list of pop songs that have good oboe solos.

So far, I've gotten:
Superstar (Long ago and far away) - The Carpenters
For All We Know - The Carpenters
59th Street Bridge Song (Feelin' Groovy) - Harper's Bizarre
I've Got You Babe - Sonny and Cher
Time in New England - Barry Manilow

If you guys know of any others, I'd love to know.

I forgot to mention, another more-traditional band song with a good oboe solo is Tichelli's Sundance.

The song I Don't Know How to Love Him from "Jesus Christ: Superstar" has a very nice oboe solo in it. I'm not sure about the other singers' versions, but I know that the version with Sharon Campbell singing has it. I'll try to put it online later so you can listen to it, but it's very neat sounding as well.

Antonin Dvorak's New World Symphony...I've heard arrangements with the oboe playing the famous theme for the Largo.

There was this amazing song that I just played in community band but I can't remember what it was. It was by Holst. Definitely a famous piece. Lemme look it up...Ooh, I found another one but it's not the piece I played recently. Suite No. 2 in F arranged for band...the second movement: Song Without Words has the most amazing oboe solo. Oh, and here's the one I'm thinking of. Suite No. 1 in E Flat...gorgeous solo in the middle of the 1st movement: Chaconne...accompanied by French Horns.

There's also Ride...new composition and I don't remember the composer.

Third Suite...don't remember the composer. Beautiful solo in the second movement, though. I played that solo myself and it was so amazing because at first it is only the oboe, then the clarinets have a soft accompaniment about 2 measures after you come in.

The third movement in Variations on a Korean Folk Song by John Barnes Chance. I loved it!
