Oboe d'amore Concerto in G major
The concerto in G for oboe d’amore is very much a ‘hunting’ concerto, and one which also, with its rapid changes of mood and character, looks forward to the classical style. The manuscript, from the Darmstadt library, contains a wide variety of different articulations for the player (especially in the treatment of the opening horn-call in the final movement). Alongside the cantabile opening section and the slow third movement (where the melody is given a typical Telemann accompaniment of detached string chords over a walking bass), comes writing of great character and flair, well worthy of Rolland’s accolade.
