Albrecht Mayer on the oboe concerto by Richard Strauss (7 min.)

Albrecht Mayer is not only principal oboist with the Berliner Philharmoniker, but has also made a name for himself as a guest soloist with orchestras around the world. In March 2012, he performed the Oboe Concerto by Richard Strauss together with the Berliner Philharmoniker and conductor Christian Thielemann. In this work from 1945, the composer dreams of a better world following the devastation of World War II. In our video, Albrecht Mayer talks about the piece and about his artistic work with the Berliner Philharmoniker. There are also excerpts from a rehearsal with the soloist and conductor.
