  • May 02, 2008 Famous concerto

    This famous oboe concerto has been transcribed for many instruments, but this is where it sits best. Playable, yet challenging to get to a performance level standard of playing. Just a really gorgeous slow movement that was the reason I bought an oboe!

  • January 23, 2007 A must for any oboist

    Alessandro Marcello's famous work (incorrectly attributed to his composer brother Benedetto in this edition) has one of the loveliest slow movements of any oboe concerto and is a "must" for any aspiring oboist. Potential buyers should be aware that this piece was originally in D minor - an easier key...

    , especially for a period instrument. The slow movement in Dm is available as a standalone piece with piano reduction at a much lower price.

  • March 27, 2004 A True Masterpiece

    Marcello's Concerto in C minor is brilliant. The first movement demands precise finger work while the second contrasts with a slow, but still moving, beautiful melody. The third movement is an appropriate finale to the work; being very light and quick, it is somewhat of a welcome finish after...

    the sad second movement. I recomend this piece for any serious oboist.

  • March 19, 2002 " A pleasent treat for young oboist"

    Marcello in his concerto in C minor demands that the oboist maintain a very responsible and honest tone. The second movement is simpily gorgeous with the clever use of mordents and chromatic phrases. The third movment is filt with fire. The articulation must be precise and no more than perfect...

    phrasing is demanded. Marcello is established as a genuis his Concert C Minor this great work proves it.
