Frisson Ensemble

Watch Video of Frisson Ensemble

Frisson Ensemble is an explosive group of rising classical stars. The group is comprised of recent graduates of top music schools including Juilliard, Curtis and Yale. Led by Director and oboist Thomas Gallant, the musicians were chosen through auditions in New York City. Individually, the musicians all have impressive resumes and have performed in such prestigious places as Carnegie Hall and Lincoln Center. Frisson’s six-member ensemble performs music with different combinations of string and wind instruments.  Programs include classical works by Beethoven and Mozart, a traditional Celtic music suite and Ennio Morricone’s Gabriel’s Oboe from the film The Mission..


“a player who unites technical mastery with intentness, charm and wit.” 

-       The New Yorker

“Gallant dazzled in virtuoso oboe works by Donizetti, with full throttle technical brilliance and musicality.” 

-       Palm Beach Daily News

“Gallant plays intelligently, with remarkable agility in his high register and a special care for phrasing, allowing his instrument to sing.” 

-       Los Angeles Times

“Gallant’s playing in and of itself – his technical mastery, playfulness and sense of line – amounted to the finest music making of the evening.” 

-       Columbus Dispatch

"Gallant is an artist and an excellent performer whose technical control is beyond reproach.  His tone is to be marveled at and truly relished. "

-       Monterey Herald

“Gallant opened with a luscious account of Boccherini’s Oboe Quintet in G Major.” 

-       Richmond Times Dispatch

"A sensational performance by oboist Thomas Gallant, who played Bach's concerto with the sort of fabulous technique and stylish interpretation not often heard in this repertoire."  

-       Louisville Courier-Journal
