Music in the Morning No. 326 – Cimarosa

 

I first heard of Domenico Cimarosa last night but I’ll not forget him.  This morning we have the first movement of his Oboe Concerto in C major.  Originally the four movements were keyboard sonatas and in 1949 Arthur Benjamin ‘combined them into the larger concerto form. He rewrote the pieces, scoring them for oboe and string orchestra, keeping most of the melody in the solo voice. [source: allmusic.com]
