Tune of the Day: Andante e spiccato, by A. Marcello

from Oboe Concerto in D minor

The concerto Alessandro Marcello wrote in D minor for oboe, strings and basso continuo is arguably his best-known work. The Adagio, in particular, has become somewhat famous due to its appearances in many films. Today we present the first movement of this Concerto, which was first published around 1717. It is marked “Andante e spiccato”, with reference to the bowing technique used by the strings, but it also goes by the name “Allegro moderato” in some editions. Pay close attention to articulation when playing this piece.
