In the concert hall and in church, as a chamber music instrument and in open-air performances, the oboe was omnipresent in the musical life of Mozart's day. There were countless outstanding wind players who were active in Austria and Bohemia during the second half of the 18th century, with the result that many of the composers associated with Viennese Classicism wrote concertos for the oboe, most of them musicians whose names have fallen into near or total oblivion. Many of these composers were themselves virtuoso oboists who explored and exploited every aspect of their instrument's multifaceted range of sonorities and its constantly improving technical possibilities. This new release from Albrecht Mayer features four such concertos composed around 1780.
