The reed is considered the part of Oboe playing that makes it so difficult. Slight variations in temperature, altitude, weather, and climate will change a perfectly working reed into an unplayable collection of cane.

Reed is a silent documentary short, in which Petrea Warneck takes the viewer through the process of making an oboe reed.

Petrea Warneck is a Yamaha Performing Artist.
