There`s no shots of any oboeists.

I used to play this tune (not as the typewriter). If you`re playing a non string instrument it`s bastard hard to keep going without breaking into a smile at times, which ruins your embouchure.

Eric Satie wrote the first orchestration for typewriter, called "Parade", which also includes score for pistol shot.

The one in the black dress at 2:19ish?

That may be my wife`s cousin. I`ve never met her, but I know she plays either the clarinet or oboe professionally and has played with the Madrid Symphony Orchestra. I`ll have to ask her when she gets home from her trip...

Leroy Anderson is one of the greatest composers of popular music in the 20th century. His body of work is awesome.

Excellent and novel (in 1950) composition. Good performance, although I prefer it a bit faster.

It looks like everyone who has posted thus far knows this piece, but I`ll offer the following for those who may not:

Title: The Typewriter
Composer: Leroy Anderson
Year composed: 1950
Original performance: Boston Pops

It is reported that the piece can only be performed by an adequately-skilled percussionist with needed wrist flexibility. As is probably expected, the typewriter used must have certain characteristics including mechanical keys, a typewriter bell, and a carriage return mechanism.

It`s my understanding that the piece is only played with two keys (as it appears to be in this video).

There was a violinist at the back I wouldn`t mind fiddling with.

Jerry Lewis does a great "air guitar" version of this in the film, "Who`s Minding the Store."
