Concerto for oboe in D minor Op.9 No.2
1st of Albinoni's 2 entries.
Albinoni's spirited Baroque concerto is still counted as a gem of the repertoire among oboe players. It was published as part of a collection comprising of 12 instrumental concertos for a range of instruments, including violin, solo oboe, and two solo oboes. The second movement's poignant simplicity, with a sustained oboe line, accompanied by stately arpeggio figures in the strings, is worlds away from the speedy final movement, which acts as a vehicle for virtuosity, proving just how much variety a Baroque concerto can provide.
