I am a composer and have a part for an oboe as follows:

Crotchet = 109 beats per minute, 4/4 time.

F#4,C#4,F#4,C#4 in semiquavers throughout the bar (and played staccatissimo) - so in each bar you have F#4,C#4,F#4,C#4 four times. I have 3 consecutive bars of these notes to be played at mezzo piano.

I believe it is playable - am I right?

Thanks.

Just to clarify C4 = middle C, so F#4 is a tritone above middle C and the C#4 is a semitone above middle C.

Yeah you should be able to play it thereís no hard fingering itís just how fast your oboists are able to get their notes out but with practice they should be fine, hope this helped

Since the notes are staccato, you may find that a student will have difficulty with tonguing notes that rapidly. An advanced player should not have a problem with that speed.
