(1814 - 1869)

Johann-Heinrich Luft may be remembered today only among oboists, who may have used his studies for the instrument. He was, however, a figure of some importance in nineteenth-century Russia, the reputed founder of Russian oboe-playing. Born in Germany in 1813, Luft moved to St Petersburg in about 1830 and from 1840 to 1860 held a principal position as oboist in the Imperial Theatre orchestra.
