Cristina Gómez Godoy
Spanish oboist Cristina Gómez Godoy combines technical brilliance with musical expressiveness, stunning virtuosity with artistic sensitivity and “miraculously effortless instinctiveness” (Süddeutsche Zeitung). She regularly impresses audiences at major festivals and concert halls around the world with her profound musicality and colour-rich sound. In 2012, at age twenty-one, she joined the Staatskapelle Berlin as solo English Horn. In 2013 Ms. Gómez was appointed principal solo oboist of the orchestra. Despite her young age, Cristina Gómez Godoy has already appeared as a soloist with major orchestras such as the Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra, the Munich Chamber Orchestra in the Herkulessaal, with the Orchestra Sinfonica do Estado de São Paulo at Sala São Paulo, with the Filarmónica de Málaga in Spain, with the Polish Chamber Philharmonic Orchestra, and with the West-Eastern Divan Orchestra, conducted by Daniel Barenboim.
