Concerto for two oboes in C major, Op 9 No 9

composer

 
The concerto in C major for two oboes (Op 9 No 9) is based around an arpeggiated figure, first heard in unison in the strings, and once again shows Albinoni’s gift as a melodist. The slow second movement is full of suspensions, made all the more telling by the use of the rich six-part texture. The concluding Allegro, too, is built on an arpeggio, and provides the accompanying strings with at least as much to play as the soloists.

Le concerto en ut majeur pour deux hautbois (op. 9 no 9) est construit sur un motif d’arpège, que l’on entend d’abord aux cordes à l’unisson, et démontre une fois de plus les dons de mélodiste d’Albinoni. Le mouvement lent abonde en suspensions, dont l’effet est accru par l’emploi de la riche texture à six parties. L’Allegro final est lui aussi construit sur un arpège, et donne au moins autant à jouer à l’accompagnement de cordes qu’aux solistes.

Français: Elisabeth Rhodes

Das Konzert in C-Dur für zwei Oboen (op. 9 Nr. 9) gründet sich auf eine arpeggierte Figur, die sich zuerst in unisono bei den Streichern hören läßt und noch einmal Albinonis Begabung als Melodiker zeigt. Der langsam zweite Satz ist voller Vorhalte, welche durch den Gebrauch der reichen sechsstimmigen Textur um so wirkungsvoller hervortreten. Das abschließende Allegro ist ebenfalls auf einem Arpeggio aufgebaut und versieht die begleitenden Streicher mit mindestens ebensoviel Spiel wie die Solisten.
