"If there is a more flawless oboist than

Brynjar Hoff, I should like to know his name.

I can think of no other performer who

can cap his range of expression and fluency."

Richard Baker, OBE, RD - BBC

most accomplished and interesting oboe players.

His repertoire is extraordinarily wide and include adventurous forays into contemporary music,

while his style of playing is both aristocratic

and extremely expressive."
