Introduction  EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
The opening movement of the Concerto in G minor, RV105, for treble recorder, oboe, violin, bassoon and continuo is dominated by busy bassoon figures in the ritornello sections whilst the solo or concertante episodes are shared among all the instruments, singly or in different groups. The middle movement is a gentle dialogue in binary structure for recorder and bassoon without continuo whilst the concluding Allegro, also binary in form, returns to a similar approach to the first with the solo episodes shared amongst the four protagonists.
