Alexei Ogrintchouk performs Strauss with the Stavanger Symphony Orchestra
Alexei Ogrintchouk returns to the Stavanger Symphony Orchestra this month for two concerts on 15 and 16 November. Ogrintchouk is the soloist for Richard Strauss' Oboe Concerto under the baton of Christian Vasquez.
Ogrintchouk recorded the concerto with the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra and Andris Nelsons for BIS Records in 2017. The recording was met with critical acclaim, including a five star review in BBC Music Magazine:
"What a subtle and fascinating artist is oboist Alexei Ogrintchouk – a team player as well as a born soloist, whose ideas on the Strauss Wind Serenade and Second Sonatina are as distinctive in their supple tempo-changes as Andris Nelson’s contrasts-writ-large (but never too large) in the Oboe Concerto."
