 Concertos for 2 oboes
Author: Surprenant

There are quite a few Baroque period concerti for two oboes, but I'm wondering if there are any concerti for two oboes composed during the Classical period (or later). I'm listening to a lovely concerto for two bassoons by Vanhal at the moment...Thanks.

Not sure, but Alex Klein recorded one originally composed for two flutes.

There's the concerto for two oboes by Alexander Voormolen - I've only heard bits here and there (the 2nd movement on the radio and what I presume is the finale - see below), never the entire concerto.

Here's a taster: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WC6oi8A3Sw4

Someone obviously took the time to watch and comment on it going by this remark: "Can´t understand how somebody can listen to this **** :-)"

Thanks for the link. Not sure what I think of this piece by Voormolen (there appears to have been more than one composer by this name), but beyond the link, I discovered a really nice concerto for two oboes by Heinichen. Back to Baroque!
