Written late in his life, Strauss’ Oboe Concerto is a dazzling masterclass in melody by one of the greatest of melodists, and its rich, flowing writing is skilfully brought to life by our Principal Oboe Diana Doherty.

Known around the world for her prodigious talent and dynamic stage presence, her bravura performances of this work set her apart from all others. If you’ve never heard the extraordinarily expressive power of the oboe as a solo instrument, this is the perfect place to start.

Brilliantly passionate, this suite from the opera Der Rosenkavalier reveals another side of Strauss. It’s a dazzling, silvery tale of emotion and romance to complete a performance of Strauss’ most captivating works, alongside famous opera overtures by Weber and Mozart.
