It's well known that hundreds - perhaps as many as a thousand - of Bach's works are lost. Most of these were instrumental works that he composed for the Collegium Musicum, founded by Georg Philipp Telemann in 1702, which was held at Zimmermann's Coffee House every Friday evening when Bach was in charge of instrumental music there. It's especially surprising that, although Bach enjoyed the sounds of the oboe and oboe d'amore so much he provided these instruments with some of his finest obbligato parts in his cantatas, oratorios and masses, none of Bach's surviving concertos include works for them. We know they existed and we'd love to hear them but they're nowhere to be found. Or are they?

Most of Bach's later concertos, especially his 13 concertos for from 1 to 4 harpsichords, are reworkings of earlier works. We can use them to return to an earlier form and do so with great accuracy. The two Bach oboe concertos recorded on this disc reverse Bach's compositional process by reconstructing his earlier concertos from later, extant works. The F major oboe concerto was reconstructed from two cantatas and the harpsichord concerto in E major BWV 1053. The A major harpsichord concerto BWV 1055 has long been recognized as being well-suited to the range and the musical capabilities of the oboe d'amore (without a change of key) once the extra keyboard figurations are removed. Once it's transcribed, the concerto explores the capabilities, range and tessituras of the oboe d'amore to great advantage. Both works are splendidly performed by Paul Goodwin and The King's Consort led by Robert King. They sound as if they are original concertos for oboe, albeit familiar ones.

This recording features concertos for oboe and its alto cousin, oboe d'amore, by Bach and Telemann. The Bach concertos are reconstructed from published harpsichord concertos that Bach is believed to have originally written for oboe and oboe d'amore. The Telemann concertos for these instruments exist in manuscript form.

It's well known that Bach's set of 13 harpsichord concertos (BWV1052-1065) from his Leipzig period were mostly transcriptions of concertos originally written for other instruments, such as the violin, flute, or oboe, and were transcribed for performances at the Collegium Musicum, a student society overseen by Bach. Some of these concertos exist in the original as well as harpsichord versions, other original versions have been lost. This CD contains two concertos, BWV 1053 in F and BWV 1055 in A, where the presumed oboe originals have been reconstructed. While these reconstructed concertos may not be exactly what Bach wrote, they're likely very close to the lost originals. Each is in three movements, similar to the Brandenburg concertos, and each contains a beautiful slow movement in the Siciliano style.

Telemann composed several oboe concertos and several as well for the oboe d'amore. Although Telemann was assiduous about getting his compositions published, the two concertos on this disk were left by him as manuscripts. Unlike Bach, Telemann's concertos have four movements: slow, fast, slow, fast. The D-minor oboe concerto is very short, with musical ideas that are barely developed. The G-major for oboe d'amore is a more ambitious work that, while still using Baroque ritornello construction, introduces ideas that are in the melodic galant style that was to become dominant in the later 18th Century.

I know very little of classical music. About the only stuff I like is Baroque style. Mozart and Beethoven bore me. (Sorry). So don't look here for an in-depth review.
I heard this cd on the radio and it was riveting. A nice mix of oboe, violins, harpsichord, etc. It is going to join my Four Seasons cd and my couple of Bach cds. Wish I could find more classical that I liked.

Performing on period instruments, Goodwin and King's Consort provide superb oboe concertos of the baroque period.
As liner notes moan, unfortunately little of what was surely wealth of oboe composition lost. Reviving harpsichord work achieves this fine display of Bach work.
Telemann of course was quantitative composer of the time and here is two of fine instrumental works for oboe, each demanding superior technique and artistic passion to pull them off as well as they are written.
Goodwin and the Consort sound so fine on all of this, with fine work of King himself on harpsichord. All on period instruments which are listed on liner notes.
Fascinating that Goodwin plays on Hailperin's.
Will be listened to regularly and enjoyed for its texture and nimble playing.
