In the opening theme for Agatha Cristie's "Miss Marple" series w/Joan Hickson, is the theme being played by an Oboe or Clarinet? Sometimes I can distinguish between the two instruments and sometimes it's a bit more difficult. I was curious which it is and thought I'd check on foo - my default place to go for answers to random questions.

I've never heard the Miss Marple theme so I can't answer directly, but I will offer that imho in a very abstract sense (at least) Prokofiev hit the nail on the head when he characterized the oboe as a duck and the clarinet as a cat.
Not sure if that will help you next time you're watching Miss Marple...

Is this it?
Thats an oboe.

It depends on what you want to reed into it.

Yeah. That's the theme. (just what I was watching last night in fact).
Foo is awesome!
I was suspecting it was an Oboe because it sounds a bit more squeaky and nasal than a clarinet but wasn't sure...but this seems to answer it. thanks.
