I'm curious as to which instruments affect the quality of a performance the most(regardless of the skill of the performer). I've heard that winds "live and die by their reeds", and obviously we are familiar with the quality of violins playing their own role in the performance of a violinist. What I'm trying to ask is, is it easier for some instruments to give a good performance than others, if we assume that the skill of the player is equal? Having limited experience with other instruments, I'm eager to hear other's opinion on this. Thank you very much for your input!
