I have loved the sound of the Oboe since the days back in 1951 when I was a member of an orchestra which performed the Schumann Symphony #2. In the third movement, there’s this hauntingly sad Oboe solo which forms the core of the entire movement. I have loved this symphony, and the sound of the Oboe ever since…

In this collection we hear Céline Moinet perform a very diverse musical program that spans more than 200 years. We hear J S Bach…. And all the way forward to Luciano Berio and Eliot Carter

Ms. Moinet produces a lovely, warm, and pleasing sound that results from sensitive phrasing and thoughtful interpretations.

Born in Lille, France,  in 1984, Céline Moinet studied oboe and chamber music at the Paris Conservatoire. In 2004 and 2005 she completed her orchestral training as a member of the Gustav Mahler Jugendorchester under the direction of Claudio Abbado. After this experience, she was invited to appear as guest principal with leading German orchestras and since June 2008 she has been the principal oboe of the celebrated Staatskapelle Dresden.

In the autumn of 2011, Ms. Moinet was invited by the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra to appear on an extended tour of Asia and Australia.

While I was unable to locate a video of Ms. Moinet, here’s a nice substitute:

J.S. Bach’s “Italienisches Konzert” BWV 971, performed by Albrecht Mayer – Oboe
