Concerto for trumpet, three oboes, bassoon and continuo in C major
EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
With the Concerto in C for trumpet, three oboes, bassoon and continuo we have an unusual work. There is no information concerning the occasion for which this concerto might have been written, but we can guess that it was probably for an outdoor occasion, where a solo trumpeter and the local oboe band might have lent musical colour to a festive occasion. Certainly the trumpeter must have been a good player, but Albinoni gives equally demanding solo ‘breaks’ to the first oboe and the obbligato bassoon. No one would suggest that this is music of greatness—though it is certainly tuneful—but it presents an unusual and fascinating tone colour.
