    I remember playing oboe parts with a straight mute before. In high school, probably for bands that didn't have an oboest(?).
    If Vulgano Brother said it is probably about focus ... take that info and run with it.

    Band directors at a hotel for a big convention.... One bursts into the room and says, "Omigod, my oboeist was moistening his reed and he accidentallyswallowed it! What should I do?"

    Another director looks up and without dropping his paper says., "Use a muted trumpet."

    If a muted trumpet can play oboe parts... what does a muted oboe play?

    Alison Balsom doesn't sound like an oboe in that piece - not live anyhow. Maybe the recording is a duff one...
