ALESSANDRO MARCELLO (1669-1747): 6 Concertos "La Cetra", Oboe Concerto in D Minor
Catalogue Number: 11Q016
Label: Brilliant Classics
Description: There's some doubt about the authorship not just of the oboe concerto (whose slow movement Bach transcribed for harpsichord) but also the half-dozen orchestral concertos (published in 1738), due to their stylistic variety, some baroque, some with galant elements, some approximating Sturm und Drang, but this only increases their interest for collectors who specialize in Baroque-Classical border regions. Andrea Mion (oboe), Insieme Strumentale di Roma; Giorgio Sasso.
