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