I almost forgot (in my PDQ bliss) we are starting Firebird tonight! This is some sort of suite but not the normal one with the Berceuse and Finale at the end - we were supposed to do the whole ballet but this is plenty! There are tons of oboe solos, and the one in the Berceusse wasn't that great anyway (really a bassoon moment). The saddest part is missing the glorious horn solo at the beginning of the finale, but oh well. The Firebird's Entreaty is a huge oboe thing, and I love the princesses dance. Of course, I could have totally different opinions about the whole thing after tonight...
