Hi 1st_oboe,
Does the piece (prominently) feature a wind instrument?

And since I'll be going to bed in a few minutes, here's one more question...

Composed before 1827?

Is it 20th century composition?

Is the composer western European?

Does it feature one or more solo instruments? (If that sounds like a contradiction in terms, I'm thinking of something like Mozart's concerto for Harp & Flute).

Was the work written before 1950?

Are there performers besides the orchestra musicians doing something onstage while the music happens?

Surprise promotion today - I'm going to be a back-up supervisor here at work today, instead of merely a phone-plebe.

Hopefully I'll still have time to check up on this thread every so often.

Is the composer still living?

Vas?

Do vocals count as 'wind instruments' and if not, why not?

Why stop there GC? If vocals count as 'wind instruments', then so should 'flatulence'. :crazy:

13. German Speaking

No. (However, I could have said yes, because most countries have at least a small percentage of people that speak German...)

And, since this is a clarificaton, I won't number it. No, I don't include vocals as a wind instrument.

But - that actually brings up a qestion of my own... Should wind chimes be considered a wind instrument?
