Oboe in C
Jacob Denner German
Design modifications such as a longer bore gradually distinguished oboes from shawms in the mid-seventeenth century. These developments first occurred in France, where the instrument was referred to as hautbois (loud wood), from which the term oboe derives. Jacob Denner was an esteemed oboist with the municipal band of Nuremberg and an important maker of oboes.
