Triebert French

On view at The Met Fifth Avenue in Gallery 684

This oboe is the immediate predecessor of the modern oboe. It was developed by the oboists Frédéric Triébert and his brother Charles-Louis in the 1860s. By revising the layout of keys and their mechanisms, the Triéberts succeeded in extending range, improving intonation and uniformity of timbre, and expanding the range of keys in which the instrument could effectively play.
