Musicians fit their instruments

A thought occurred to me. (Amazing, right?) I was watching a video of "Scheherazade" by Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov for about the 50th time, and I realized that the musicians really fit their instruments. For example, the clarinetist seemed serious and sort of no-nonsense, like a clarinet, and when the music became more playful, he was more like that. (This might not make sense, but these are just my thoughts as they appeared.) So I've tried looking at people and trying to guess what instrument they would play, and it's a lot harder than I would've expected. This has turned out a lot less clear than I meant it to, but I hope you understand. Does anyone have thoughts on this?
