Someone worth getting to know …


Tabuteau, who was French-American, is considered the founder of the American school of oboe playing. He served as principal oboist of the Philadelphia Orchestra from 1915 to 1954 and, just as importantly, taught at the Curtis Institute of Music (as well as privately) from 1925 (a year after Curtis opened) until his retirement in 1954.
 During those years, he came to exercise a decisive influence on the standards of classical music performance in the United States raising them to an unprecedented level. His influence upon classical musicians of every discipline continues to be felt even today.
