Concerto in E flat major

Wenster/Lund 4; for horn, two oboes and continuo

The Concerto in E flat major features the horn as soloist with a pair of oboes replacing traditional orchestral violins. The style is rather similar to that of works by Graun and it is most likely contemporaneous. Two fast outer movements, full of virtuosic passagework for the horn player, flank a beautiful aria-like slow movement.

Le Concerto en mi bémol majeur présente le cor en soliste avec deux hautbois qui remplacent les violons d’orchestre traditionnels. Le style ressemble assez à celui des autres œuvres de Graun et est probablement contemporain. Deux mouvements externes rapides, pleins de traits de virtuosité pour le corniste, encadrent un magnifique mouvement lent dans le style d’une aria.

Das Concerto Es-Dur stellt dem Solohorn zwei Oboen statt der üblichen Orchestergeigen gegenüber. Im Stil ähnelt es den Werken Grauns und entstand höchstwahrscheinlich zur selben Zeit. Zwei rasche Sätze mit virtuosen Hornpassagen flankieren einen wunderschönen langsamen Satz nach Art einer Arie.
