does something exist in the oboe world akin to Trevor Wye's flute books?
Looking for something that succinctly gets to the heart of the matter. On the flute I use the Wye Omnibook with bits from Taffanel/Gaubert, Werner Richter and Vernon Hill's books, but the Wye really covers everything.
Is there an oboe equivalent??

The only ones I can suggest are the ones I use which are Rubank method books.
It;s a complete set of books from elementary to intermediate to advanced. Without knowing your proficiency of the instrument, it is difficult to suggest a specific book. What one finds useful and a huge boon for them with one series of books might just be completely useless for another. However, you can find a lot of different books for oboe at forest music in Berkeley, CA.

They will even ship your order to you in you do not live in the BAy Area.

My daughter used the Barret Method as suggested by her private instructor. It's pretty thorough, similar to Klosé for clarinet.

Taffanel and Gaubert is an essential technical resource for all woodwinds, you need look no further, you just need to put in the time.
