Yeon-Hee Kwak, Oboe
Yeon-Hee Kwak was born in Seoul, Korea. After completing her studies at Hanyang University in Seoul she came to Germany, where she received her diploma in solo oboe from the State Academy of Music and Performing Arts in Stuttgart in 2000.
From 2000 to 2008, Ms. Kwak has been deputy principal oboist in the Münchner Rundfunkorchester and on the faculty at the State Academy of Music and Performing Arts in Stuttgart.
There are 3 interesting compositions on this CD:
• Bohuslav Martinu: Concerto for Oboe and small Orchestra
• Heinz Holliger: Sonata for Solo Oboe
• Antal Dorati: Divertimento for Oboe and Orchestra
I could not locate a video of Holliger performing his own Sonata. Instead, here he is playing a section of the Mozart Oboe concerto:
