The oboe is a woodwind instrument with a double reed and a slightly conically drilled tube. The sound is generated with a double reed, which is taken between the inwardly curved lips and blown through with high pressure. The oboe has been a popular solo instrument since the Baroque period, and many composers valued it as the most similar to the human voice in terms of its expressiveness. She also has a permanent place in the orchestra and is therefore the first representative of woodwind instruments alongside the flute and bassoon.
