Musical Star Wars puns

As the new Star Wars movie (The Force Awakens) takes the world by storm, some Facebook friends have posted this display of four groanworthy illustrations of characters from the movies playing in the Star Wars orchestra:

The composition, from Film Composers United, is at least a year old, and has been passed around from site to site.

In case you don’t know the characters from the movies and their names in the movies, they are, starting from the upper left and moving clockwise: Luke Skywalker (on flute), Darth Vader (on harp), Han Solo (on (French) horn), and Obi-Wan (Kenobi) (on oboe). The puns are moderately distant, but the originals for the instrument names are heavily determined by the second element of the names (so long as you know those names).
