As a double-reed player, I must say that GPO is quite impressive. The oboe d\'amore is really well done in this collection. The selection of timbres among the generous variety of oboes is incredible. While I have made note in the past of some emboucher tuning issues, particularly with the English Horn, the quality of these double reeds has made this oboist think that his future as a studio oboe player might be in jeopardy!
