We are very excited to announce that the Oboe Duo Agosto will be travelling to Bangkok, Thailand in August! We are invited to participate at the inaugural conference of the Asian Double Reed Association. We will be presenting a duo concert entitled “The Asian-American Experience Enriches the World of Oboe Playing”, which features Asian folk, American folk, contemporary and cross-cultural music written and arranged for the oboe and the English horn, including two world premieres written for us by American composer Phil Salathe and Taiwanese composer Feng-Hsu Lee. Charles will also be presenting, together with Lily Lin, piano faculty at the University of Mahidol, a lecture recital on the oboe transcription of Brahms’ second violin sonata.
We look forward to the musical and cultural exchange!
