During Julia Figueras' Shift on Classical 91.5
Erik Behr, Principle Oboe, RPO joins Julia.
Erik Behr, Principle Oboe for your Rochester Philharmonic Orchestra, is about to take on the daunting, but lyrical Oboe Concerto by Richard Strauss. Taking up the baton is guest conductor Junichi Hirokami. Both chatted with Julia Figueras about the Rochester connections with the Strauss, their parents reactions to choosing a musical path, and why an orchestral concert is like eating at a fine restaurant.
