Bass Oboe Appreciation Post

For friends unaware that the bass oboe is a real thing! In the key of C, one octave below a regular oboe. Sometimes used in place of Heckelphone (an instrument with similar range), but most often rented out for “The Planets”, where it is heard in Mars, Mercury, Saturn, Uranus, and Neptune. There is very little repertoire, including one concerto.
