Bach Concerto for Oboe and Violin

I have tentative plans to learn the Bach Concerto for Oboe and Violin with a friend this fall. In fact, we sight-read it together over the weekend and I was reminded of how much I really like this piece.

This recording by Trevor Pinnock and the English Concert is lovely.

The second movement is particularly beautiful. (Although I must admit I love the second movement of his Concerto for Two Violins better... how could anyone not?)

The triplet-y bits in the third movement are as fun to play as they sound!


  1. I like this piece too! What a coincidence!

  2. When is the performance? Dad and I want to be there!
