Concerto in c minor (Cramer/Bach)-OB/PN

Composer: Marcello

Publisher: TrevCo

Edition: 2807k


The Marcello Oboe Concerto is arguably the most recognized and performed work for the instrument. This beautiful three movement concerto is accessible to younger oboists as well as professionals. This piece is frequently performed in the key of c minor, or in the key of d minor. TrevCo-Varner Music offers the work in both keys, both for oboe and piano, or oboe and orchestra.

When selecting an edition of this work, check the second movement's ornamentation carefully. Many editions provide the ornamentation by Richard Lauschmann, others use the ornamentation by J.S. Bach (based off of his edition of the piece for harpsichord, BWV 974), and some offer no written out ornamentation at all.

This particular edition in c minor for oboe and piano has printed both the original (non-ornamented) part, with the J.S. Bach version printed above.

Edited by Trevor Cramer.


Notes from the publisher:

The c minor version of the Marcello Oboe Concerto was transcribed by Benedetto Marcello, brother of Alessandro Marcello who composed the original version in d minor. TrevCo Music Publishing offers both versions: d minor TCO 2806; and c minor TCO2807. Editions are identical except for the key. Matching string sets with basso continuo for each version are also available.
