Oboe Concerto in F major, RV455
EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
With the oboe concerto in F major, RV455, we find Vivaldi in highly individual vein: if there really was evidence needed to scotch the old story that he wrote the same concerto six hundred times, this would be proof enough! After the dramatic opening orchestral ritornello, full of sweeping and grand gestures, the soloist takes over, and we find extraordinary writing, both melodic and harmonic. The slow movement is pastoral, with much of the accompaniment given over to the upper strings. The concluding Allegro molto is in ritornello form with the orchestral ritornelli set amongst the soloist’s increasingly virtuosic episodes.
