The Viennese Oboe

Abby Held, oboe

Despite living in this age of information, little research exists surrounding the Viennese oboe. Perhaps even more scarce is the opportunity to hear this unique instrument live. I recognized this as a huge gap within our community, and sought to remedy it by living in Vienna for a year, studying the instrument and carrying out research funded by Fulbright. As a result, I wrote my article “The Viennese Oboe and its Classical/Romantic Traditions” which was published in Vol. 42, no. 3 of the IDRS Double Reed, and will now present these ideas and more in lecture-recital form.
