Always popular with our audiences, you may remember Mike Grieff's mesmerising performances in the past few years, notably the Cimarosa Oboe Concerto and Gabriel's Oboe
Mike has a wealth of experience as a performer both in England and abroad and the audience will be in for an absolute treat of virtuoso playing. As a student, Mike received oboe lessons in England as well as at the Conservatoire d’Aix-en-Provence, in the South of France and then became principal oboist of the Durham Symphony and Chamber Orchestras.
Since 1996, Mike has performed with the Surrey Mozart Players and has often been singled out for his brilliant playing. Previous reviews include ‘The conductor rightly offered special praise for Mike Grieff’s playing of the particularly challenging oboe part in Ravel’s Tombeau de Couperin. ‘Particular mention must be made of the oboe solo played by Mike Grieff which opens the slow movement of Brahms’ violin concerto. Mike moved to Cornwall in 2014 and is now a regular performer with the Bude Concert Orchestra.
