Ever wondered who the fastest Oboe Player in the world is??? Well, personally I hadn’t, but of course when it came up in a You Tube search, how thrilled was I to realise that such a thing even existed!!!
This is Jack Cozen Harel, an oboist currently working for the Cleveland Institute of Music faculty.
He holds the official current World Guinness Record for “Fastest Oboe Playing” … How?? By performing all 409 notes of Rimsky-Korsakov’s Flight of the Bumblebee in 26.1 seconds.
Wowsers! Check it out… 🙂
