Albrecht MAYER | oboe
PRAGUE SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA
Pietari INKINEN | conductor
One should not fixate on titles, but Albrecht Mayer is the king of the oboe. He became Principal Oboe of the Berlin Philharmonic as early as 1992 and has been wielding the granadilla sceptre to this day. This FOK evening can’t be called anything but Pastoral. Enchanted by the bucolic playing, we shall wander through French, English and German grasslands and breathe in the aroma of peculiar flowers that only the oboe can produce. Albrecht Mayer’s invitation from the orchestra is a continuation of his regular collaboration with the Berlin Philharmonic, initiated by Pietari Inkinen.
The concert is being held under the auspices of the Embassy of Finland to the Czech Republic
