"...dazzlingly good chamber ensemble…
exuberantly expressive, intimate style…
gorgeously idiomatic playing’
The Times
Christopher O'Neal
Wind: oboe

Christopher O'Neal's orchestral positions include principal oboe with the Orchestra of St. John's Smith Square and co-principal oboe with the London Mozart Players. He has appeared as guest principal with all the major orchestras in this country. But his first love remains chamber music, having grown up in a large musical family,
joining the frequent chamber music evenings with local musicians. As well as the Fibonacci Sequence, he is also founder member of the Elysian Wind Quintet and Capricorn, and is often invited as guest with such ensembles as
the Nash, Endymion, Lontano and London Winds. As soloist, he has played throughout Europe and also the USA. His recording of Mozart's Sinfonia Concertante with the English Sinfonia and Sir Charles Groves features among many highly acclaimed recordings for Hyperion, Pickwick and Chandos. His CD ‘Oboe’ was the fourth in the Fibonacci/Deux-Elles series and was released in 2009.
