Robin Williams (oboe)

Robin Williams has been Principal Oboe with the Scottish Chamber Orchestra since 1992. Born in West Bromwich, he attended Wells Cathedral School where he studied oboe with Janet Craxton. He then studied with Peter Graeme at the Royal Northern College of Music, where he was finalist in many prestigious competitions and a major award-winner of the Countess of Munster Trust.

After graduating, Williams spent several years abroad as concert soloist with the Heidelberger Kammerorkester, the Wiener Solisten, the Johann Strauss Sinfonietta and Musikkollegium Zürich, and subsequently as Principal Oboe with the Espoo City Chamber Orchestra and the Espoo Wind Quintet in Finland. Moving to Germany in 1990, he worked with the Niederrheinischen Sinfoniker.

As a soloist with the SCO, Williams has performed works including Kenneth Leighton’s Veris Gratia (with cellist Raphael Wallfisch) and Bach’s Concerto for violin and oboe with violinist Alexander Janiczek. His recordings include Vivaldi’s Oboe Concerto in A minor conducted by Nicholas McGegan and Mozart’s Oboe Quartet.
