Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Lothar Koch (1 July 1935 - 16 March 2003) was the principal oboist in the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra during the Herbert von Karajan era. He was born in Velbert. He is recognised as the father of the German style of oboe playing which is characterised by a very rich and round tone, often referred to as a dark tone but corrected by Lothar Koch himself as rather being clear (Quote: "Es ist nicht dunkel, es ist hell!"). He claimed that as a youngster, he had no example to base his quality of tone on and spent time listening to opera singers to cultivate his unique tone.show more
