Olivier Stankiewicz, oboe

An internationally acclaimed French oboist, Stankiewicz’s many achievements include being named principal oboe of the London Symphony Orchestra. As a true virtuoso, he is always pushing the envelope, commissioning new works and experimenting with soundscapes and improvisation. At only 25 years old, this young artist has been praised for his “astounding technique, rich sound, and mature artistry” (ResMusica). He is also a founding member of the experimental music collective WARN!NG, whose contemporary compositions have been featured in installations at the Zenith de Paris, Gaîté Lyrique, Printemps des Arts of Monaco, and several broadcasts on France Musique.

  • Since 2015, Stankiewicz has been a Professor of Oboe at the Royal College of Music in London.
  • Stankiewicz made his first concerto appearance at the age of 16 with the Monte-Carlo Philharmonic.
  • The oboist has won many awards including first prize at the 2012 International Oboe Competition in Japan and first prize at the Young Concert Artists international auditions in Leipzig and in New York in 2015.
