The second movement of the Messiaen has a nice Ehorn solo.  Of course the contra is featured at the beginning of the Ravel.

Strasbourg is a lovely town on the French/German border, and I saw this orchestra play while I was visting.
Sebastian Giot, who has played in at least one or maybe more IDRS conventions is the Principal Oboe.
