Apollon Marie-Rose Barret (1804-1879) was the solo oboist of London's Royal Italian Opera, Covent Garden, for 45 years. He was also an innovative oboe designer, devising many mechanical & acoustical improvements still in use today. To illustrate the advantages of his new design, he published the second edition of his Complete Method for the Oboe in 1862. A facsimile of that book, is the Barret Oboe Method in common use today.
