'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 C major, Op 9 No 9

Allegro  [4'01]
Allegro  [3'30]

Introduction  EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
The concerto in C major for two oboes (Op 9 No 9) is based around an arpeggiated figure, first heard in unison in the strings, and once again shows Albinoni’s gift as a melodist. The slow second movement is full of suspensions, made all the more telling by the use of the rich six-part texture. The concluding Allegro, too, is built on an arpeggio, and provides the accompanying strings with at least as much to play as the soloists.
