Editorial Reviews


This series sets forth a quick set of pointers to improve musicians' work as performers. Easy to use and intended for the advanced musician so the book states, these books 'fill a niche for those who have moved beyond what beginners and intermediate practitioners need'. This excellent book does it exactly what it says on the back cover. ... Oboe Secrets would be of use to oboists of almost any level. . . . For the student or amateur it points the way to future development of playing, and better technique; it would be a most useful resource for teachers. For a professional such as myself I found it thought-provoking and very rewarding to read, encouraging us to re-evaluate what we do, how we do it and why. ... Oboe Secrets clearly represents a great deal of work in assembling the ideas, describing things clearly and setting them out in a logical and highly readable way, with sensible use of illustrations. May of the 'secrets' would be of use to players of other instruments too. Jacqueline Leclair has done a very fine piece of work for us all, and I highly commend it.
(Double Reed News)

Leclair's descriptions and ideas of conquering them should be refreshing and often liberating. Being reminded of a 'lost technique' is quite helpful, and likewise reading solutions similar to your own can be reassuring. The resource list at the end of the book is extremely helpful in that Leclair has included a brief synopsis for each book listed. The variety of texts and suggested recordings lends insight into Leclair's reading tastes and habits. It is clear that she is committed to working towards healthy playing habits, enhancing and encouraging creativity, and opening her mind and body to discovery and invention. Oboe Secrets is written in clear, easy to comprehend language, should be a staple in the oboists' and English hornists' libraries, and I recommend it for students, teachers, amateurs and professionals alike. (The Double Reed)
