Oboe, with a very clear timbre, tunes the instruments of the orchestra
to its own pitch A. Combining a vast and varied ‘repertoire’, and a
rich and delicate tone, the Oboe is often required to play solos or
dominant roles in symphony orchestras.
The Baroque period abounds of concerti and sonatas of famous composers
such as Vivaldi, Bach, Marcello, Albinoni and Telemann.
Classical composers as Mozart and Haydn and romantic ones like Schumann
and Schubert, also wrote concerti for this instrument.
During the 20th century, writers like Strauss, Ibert, and Martinu
considerably developed the tone and technical possibilities of the Oboe.
In addition, contemporary composers such as Berio, Saint-Saëns,
Poulenc, Britten, Holliger and Yun, continue to write oboe works in
order to contribute to widen the potential of this instrument.
