What a tiny, tiny baroque oboe world!
Standing on the High Line with Tatiana Daubek getting my new headshots, a lovely stranger approached, clearly surprised and fascinated by what she was seeing. No, I wasn’t wearing a costume, nor did I have something in my teeth. She asked if I actually play the baroque oboe! Indeed, it was the one and only Katharina Spreckelsen, principal oboist of the English Concert and countless other ensembles. What a treat, and what a photo-op! Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to be at ANY of their concerts in New York. Shame!
