The chapters are in prose format and highlight different aspects of each musician's career, focusing on musicianship and pedagogy in ways that are applicable to all musicians. The interviews contain topics such as creating musical interpretations and shaping phrases, the relationship of vocal to instrumental music, taking orchestral auditions and being a good ensemble player/colleague. The subjects describe their pedagogy and their thoughts on breathing and support on wind instruments, developing finger technique and creating a useful warm-up routine. The oboists discuss their ideals in reedmaking, articulation and vibrato. They also share stories from their life and careers. The oboists and English hornists profiled from North America profiled are Pedro Diaz, Elaine Douvas and Nathan Hughes (Metropolitan Opera Orchestra), John Ferrillo (Boston Symphony Orchestra), Carolyn Hove (LA Philharmonic), Richard Killmer (Eastman School), Nancy Ambrose King (University of Michigan), Frank Rosenwein and Robert Walters (Cleveland Orchestra), Humbert Lucarelli (soloist), Grover Schiltz (formerly Chicago Symphony), Eugene Izotov (Chicago Symphony, originally from Russia), Allan Vogel (LA Chamber Orchestra), David Weiss (formerly LA Philharmonic), Randall Wolfgang (New York City Ballet and formerly Orpheus Chamber Orchestra), Alex Klein (Brazil, formerly Chicago Symphony and currently Calgary, CA), and Sarah Jeffrey, Toronto Symphony Orchestra.
