Minnesota Orchestra Principal Oboe Basil Reeve plays final solo of his 41-year tenure

In a pair of Minnesota Orchestra concerts led by British conductor Mark Wigglesworth, longtime Principal Oboe Basil Reeve plays his final concerto solo before retiring from the Orchestra at the close of the current season. The concerts, held on April 27 and 28, feature the North American premiere of the Michael Berkeley Oboe Concerto, a deeply expressive work for soloist and string orchestra, and a full performance of Ravel’s ballet Daphnis and Chloe, a masterpiece of musical impressionism. The Minnesota Chorale, the Orchestra’s principal chorus, performs in Daphnis and Chloe.
