Profile

Background

Lydia enjoys a varied musical career performing as a soloist, orchestral and chamber musician. She often travels to exciting places to perform - recent highlights have been Vietnam, Cambodia and Taiwan. Lydia regularly plays oboe and cor anglais with orchestras such as the London Philharmonic Orchestra, Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, and Welsh National Opera, as well as in the West End. She studied at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama followed by the Royal College of Music.

Repertoire

When most people book, they opt to let the musician create the listening experience based on the details you provide, but you can also peruse the musician's repertoire below if you would like something specific.

I'm really happy to take requests and can arrange any pop songs, show tunes or film music you like. One of my favourites is Gabriel's Oboe from the Mission. I also love a bit of Disney. Perhaps you would like to hear some of the beautiful melodies written for the oboe and cor anglais in orchestral music. The most famous one is probably the cor anglais solo from the New World Symphony. I have a wide range of classical repertoire available - here are a few examples: Telemann - Fantasias Marais - Les Folies d'Espagne Britten - 6 Metamorphoses After Ovid Marcello - Oboe Concerto Vaughan Williams - 6 Studies on English Folk Song
