Does anybody know of an alternative way to finger high B flat to D? There is a vivace 16th note section alternating between B flat to D that I cannot play cleanly with normal fingerings. Suggestions? Thank you.
The standard B flat fingering along with the third D fingering on this list http://www.wfg.woodwind.org/oboe/ob_alt_3.html might work for you, it at least makes it so you only have to move one finger on each hand.
You've probably already looked there though, but if not, you might find some other workable combinations.
