-------------------------------

Each piece here is in four movements. Moderate tempos and major keys predominate, but there are enough contrasting moods to avoid cheerful overload. This is from the oboe concerto's slow movement:

Listen -- Adagio (Idilio-Concertino) (track 3, 0:00-1:09)

and this from the elegiac I of the bassoon concerto.

Listen -- Notturno (Suite-Concertino Op 16) (track 5, 4:03-5:31)

The instrument's jocular side first appears in II.

Listen -- Strimpellata (Suite-Concertino Op 16) (track 6, 0:00-0:40)
© 2007 CPO
