DUDU CARMEL: Oboe Virtuoso
4 August @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm AEST
Dudu Carmel, Solo Oboist with the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra, is a wild, mercurial personality, famed for his dazzling brilliance and musical daring.
In 2018, he leads musicians from the Australian National Academy of Music (ANAM) for the first time in a specially curated concert.
With the exception of the Mozart Divertimento, the works Dudu has selected are re-workings by their composers to feature the oboe as soloist, with Berio’s characteristically theatrical Chemins IV (his gloss on his dizzying oboe Sequenza) teeming with particularly outrageous invention and vertiginous virtuosity.
- MOZART Quintet in C minor for oboe and strings K406a
- JOLIVET Sérénade for wind quintet
- BERIO Chemins IV for oboe and strings
- MOZART Divertimento for oboe, 2 horns and strings in D K251
- Dudu Carmel oboe/director
- ANAM Musicians
“I get a new oboe every year. I am not sentimental about it. I am addicted to the feeling of “opening” a new instrument. Professional oboists get new instruments once every few years, not every year like me.” – Dudu Carmel
