    Abstract

    The aim of this thesis is to evaluate the potential contributions that could be applied to a performance using a Baroque oboe playing Baroque repertoire in an ensemble of contemporary instruments. In order to achieve this I will research the history of the oboe family and performance practice of the Baroque period and compare the technical elements of performing on a modem oboe compared with the Baroque oboe. In order to establish the validity to my experiments, I will also interrogate the concept of an 'authentic' performance within the context of Historically Informed Performances. Then, via a CD recording, provide listening opportunities to compare the Baroque oboe with its modern counterpart when played in a contemporary setting.
