MODERN AND HISTORICAL WINDS
Fiona Last Oboe
From playing Renaissance polyphony on the shawm to performing Stravinsky with John Adams, Fiona Last is always seeking out new instruments to play and new musical idioms through which to express herself. Her interest in early instruments stems from the belief that we all seek to mine the most potential possible from the music that we play, and that understanding a musical style through the instrument for which it was written and vice-versa can bring a special kind of life to music-making.
This coming season brings a tour to Germany with Tempesta di Mare, concerts for Boston Early Music Festival and Music Before 1800, and performances with Piffaro: The Renaissance Band, Early Music New York, Choral Arts Philadelphia, and the Lancaster Symphony.
