Oboist Richard Woodhams

This Sunday’s re-broadcast of The Philadelphia Orchestra in Concert, on July 20th at 1 pm, features a celebrated oboe concerto by Richard Strauss. As WRTI’s Susan Lewis reports, the 1945 work has a Philadelphia connection.

The concert features Mahler's 4th Symphony, Britten's Variations and Fugue on a Theme of Purcell, and the Strauss Oboe Concerto with soloist Richard Woodhams.
