Mozart Oboe Concerto
Stravinsky Suite from Pulcinella

With its soaring cadenzas and irresistible melodies, Mozart’s Oboe Concerto is
a wonder to behold. Newly appointed Principal Oboe Philippe Tondre is just the
eighth person to hold this title in the past 121 years. His stunning virtuosity propels this piece to new heights. Philadelphia native Melinda Wagner took inspiration from Bach’s Brandenburg Concerto No. 4 for her piece Little Moonhead. The concert concludes with the charm and wit of Stravinsky’s Pulcinella Suite.
