Getting some facts straight; DeLancie was the assistant principal in Philly,
not the 2nd oboe player. Non-principal winds simply did not perform concertos
at that time. Principal players did so rarely at best. Tabuteau never
performed the Strauss at all. It was premiered in Europe.

<<John DeLancie played 2nd oboe to Tabuteau in Philadelphia. While in Europe
he made a point of visiting Richard Strauss to suggest that he write an oboe
concerto. Strauss did, but when it was played in Philadelphia for the first
time, DeLancie did not get to do the US premier because Tabuteau insisted
that, as principle, he had the right to be soloist and did so!>>
