Principal oboe resumes his seat after 12-year breakmain
This is Alex Klein’s first day back at work as principal oboe of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra.
Alex resigned from the orchestra in 2004 after two fingers in his left hand were afflicted with focal dystonia. Over time, back home in Brazil, he learned to manage the condition by adjusting the keys on his oboe.
He won his seat back at audition last month.
Tonight, he can be heard at the Ravinia Festival.
