Marcel Tabuteau is one of the greatest figures in 20th century music. Studying the oboe from an early age at the Paris Conservatory, he was brought to the United States in 1905 to play with the New York Symphony Orchestra. Although this posed a problem for the national musicians' union, he was ultimately allowed to stay, and the rest, as they say, is history. Tabuteau is known for revamping the oboe world with his performances, pedagogical and reed-making techniques.
