'Delightful' (BBC Music Magazine Top 1000 CDs Guide)

'Delightful … played with vivacity and finesse' (Gramophone)

'What a breath of fresh air! Played as they should be and never have been 'til now. This recording is a complete delight, a small pattering of allegros and adagios that purr as happily as a spring rain' (The Magic Flute, USA)

Concerto for two oboes in G major, Op 9 No 6

Allegro  [3'38]
Allegro  [2'31]

Introduction  EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
The concerto in G for two oboes (Op 9 No 6) is a particularly fine piece whose energetic first movement ritornello is thrown between the oboes and the upper string parts, whilst in the episodes the two soloists have more lyrical passages. The slow movement is one of Albinoni’s finest, full of rich harmonic sequences and suspensions. In the concluding dance-like Allegro, Albinoni presents a variety of textures, giving the bass line to the viola and writing lines for the violins which are equally as virtuosic as those for the two soloists.
