Are you The Norwegian Wind Ensemble’s new oboist?

Oboe/Cor anglais
The Norwegian Wind Ensemble (Det Norske Blåseensemble) is an ensemble, which prides itself on the high quality of its performances in an eclectic range of musical genres. Within this broad spectrum, the Norwegian Wind Ensemble focuses particularly on innovative approaches in the following areas:
Early music
As Norway’s oldest orchestra, The Norwegian Wind Ensemble has chosen to specialise in the recreation of historic performance techniques, focusing on the period from the Renaissance up to and including the First Viennese School. The combination of historically authentic and modern instruments gives the ensemble a unique sound and breathes new life into well-known works from these periods.

Real-time music
In recent years, The Norwegian Wind Ensemble has paved the way both nationally and internationally for new music with improvisation as the key element of expression.  Our real-time music is improvisation on classical terms, created in the moment, and can therefore never be repeated.

The candidate
We are looking for a soloistic and versatile oboist, who is curious about new tasks and finds our musical profile exciting. The successful candidate will enjoy working in an ambitious and well-humoured environment.

The job
The Norwegian Wind Ensemble is seeking an oboist to fill a full-time performing position with the ensemble. The successful candidate will participate in all our productions where required by the score. We alternate on all tasks in the oboe section.

We offer
As a member of Norway’s only professional civilian wind ensemble, you will have the chance to work with and help develop a highly ambitious orchestra. We offer an opportunity to join a group of dedicated musicians whose goal is to have fun and play great music.
