The Russian woodwind played Andrey Godik has joined the Mahler Chamber Orchestra as principal oboe.

He also plays in the Munich Philharmonic.


  • NYMike says:

    The Royal Concertgebouw also has a Russian principal oboe.

  • Richard says:

    He runs out of breath but somehow finds more to serve the musical line, then pants frantically as if he might have died. The Strauss this month was unforgettable, also a model of good taste, Susanna Mälkki conducting. And she, by the way, would be the perfect fit for Munich’s city orchestra, elegant and effective as she is.
